  • 2 head of cauliflower
  • 8 garlic cloves more or less to taste, depends how much you like garlic
  • Olive oil
  • Black pepper
  • Sea salt


  1. Rinse the cauliflower and cut the florets away from the core.
  2. Peel the garlic. I take a huge knife, hold it sideways (flat) and push down on the garlic to break the coating of the garlic. The peel slips right off.
  3. Throw the cauliflower and garlic into a medium saucepan along with about ½ inch of water (or use a steaming basket).
  4. Steam for 8 minutes until the cauliflower is tender when pierced.

  5. Into a food processor, place the cooked cauliflower, whole garlic cloves, olive oil, pepper and salt (optional) to taste. Give it a good whirl until the consistency is smooth.
