Roasted garlic mashed fauxtatoes
1 16 oz. bag frozen cauliflower florets
Preheat oven to 350. Fold a piece of foil in thirds. Place garlic and olive oil in foil and fold to form a packet. Place garlic packet in oven and roast for 30 minutes. Remove from oven.
In a saucepan, boil enough water to submerge the cauliflower (about half full or so). Add frozen cauliflower and boil till tender (6-8 minutes). You could also steam the cauliflower to retain more nutrients. Drain cauliflower well and place in a bowl – turn your burner down to medium, but don’t turn off. In bowl, add the contents of the garlic packet to the cauliflower. Using an immersion stick blender, puree mixture until smooth. Put the fauxtatoes back in the pot and put back on the heat for about 5 minutes to help the extra moisture to boil off (this is to get it “drier” or more the texture of mashed potatoes). Add salt & pepper to taste and enjoy!
