  •  salt and ground black pepper
Method: 
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Add cauliflower and cook until very tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid and then drain well and transfer cauliflower to a food processor.
  • Add the oil the garlic and the reserved water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and purée until smooth. (Or, mash cauliflower with a potato masher).
