Steamed cauliflower?  Gag noise.  Steamed cauliflower that's pureed and blended with chives, garlic and nutritional yeast?  Amazing!  Try this as a side to a protein or underneath vegetables and sauce as if it's polenta.  Feel free to play around with the flavor profile by adding different herbs or even vegetables.  This mash freezes great too so save the leftovers for another night.

1 head cauliflower, chopped into florets
1/2 clove garlic
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon olive oil
generous sprinkle of salt and pepper
1/4 cup+ unsweetened almond milk
salt to taste
1 bunch chives, finely chopped

1. Steam cauliflower until soft, 5-10 minutes.  Remove from heat and blot off extra moisture with a clean kitchen towel.  

2. Add cauliflower to food processor with garlic, nutritional yeast, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Puree until smooth with just enough almond milk to make blend.  Taste and season with salt and top with chives.
