If you like mashed potatoes, you'll enjoy Creamy Garlic Mashed CAULIFLOWER! Seasoned with garlic & onions, this healthy side dish is amazing!
Unwrap cauliflower; remove green leaves. Turn cauliflower upside down; carefully cut out the core. Cut/separate cauliflower into florets, removing/discarding thick, hard stems. Bring large pan of water to a boil. Place florets into boiling water; cook until tender (approx. 5-6 minutes). Drain once done. *You can also steam the cauliflower, if you prefer.
While cauliflower cooks, melt 2 teaspoons of butter in large skillet. Sauté chopped onions for 3-4 minutes. When done, add cooked cauliflower to onions in skillet. Cook on medium-low heat for 7-8 minutes, stirring often. Transfer onion/cauliflower mixture to food processor or blender. Process until mixture becomes fairly smooth.
Melt a teaspoon of butter in skillet on low heat. Add chopped garlic. Cook and stir ONLY until garlic begins to turn brown (about a minute). Don't let garlic get too browned or burn, or it will become bitter. Remove from the heat when done. Add cooked garlic and remaining Tablespoon of butter to pureed cauliflower. Continue processing until fully smooth. Scrape down sides, if necessary. Finished texture should be similar to mashed potatoes, once done. Season with salt, to taste.
Once cauliflower is smooth (like mashed potatoes in texture), remove from food processor. Transfer to serving dish; add a few chives to the top for garnish, if desired. Serve hot, and enjoy!
