(Serves 4)

 

Ingredients:

8 cups bite-size cauliflower florets (about 1 head)

4 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled

1/3 cup buttermilk

4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

1 teaspoon butter

1/2 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground pepper to taste

Snipped fresh chives for garnish

 

Method:

Place cauliflower florets and garlic in a steamer basket over boiling water, cover and steam until very tender, 12 to 15 minutes. (Alternatively, place florets and garlic in a microwave-safe bowl with 1/4 cup water, cover and microwave on High for 3 to 5 minutes.) Place the cooked cauliflower and garlic in a food processor. Add buttermilk, 2 teaspoons oil, butter, salt and pepper; pulse several times, then process until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a serving bowl. Drizzle with the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and garnish with chives, if desired. Serve hot. *Eating Well Magazine*

 

Notes:

No buttermilk? You can use buttermilk powder prepared according to package directions. Or make “sour milk”: mix 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup milk.
