This cauliflower puree is silky smooth and creamy! It tastes like a treat but it's healthy!
  • 1 head cauliflower (medium or large)
  • 4 small or medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1.5 Tbsp butter, unsalted
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth, low sodium
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Dill or parsley, chopped (optional)
  1. Wash and chop cauliflower (remove most of the stalks) and put in a large pot.
  2. Fill pot with 3 cups broth and 3 cups water. Bring to a boil and allow to boil for 7-10 minutes or until you can easily put a fork through the cauliflower.
  3. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook until it’s fragrant. Make sure the garlic doesn’t burn. Transfer the garlic and butter to a blender.
  4. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cauliflower to the blender. Add 3 Tbsp of the cooking liquid, salt, and pepper to the blender. Blend for a minute until the puree is very smooth; pause blending to scrape down sides a couple of times.
  5. Mix in fresh herbs (optional step).
If need to store for a few days, store in a tight container. Cauliflower and liquid may separate a bit so you will need to mix the puree.
