3 Tbsp high-quality EVOO  (optional)

Rosemary to taste

Directions:

  • Place cauliflower florets in a large microwave-proof bowl and seal with plastic wrap.
  • Microwave cauliflower on high for 10 minutes.
  • Carefully remove plastic wrap from bowl, season with salt, pepper, oil, and roasted garlic.
  • Puree with an immersion (stick) blender for 3 minutes. If you do not have an immersion blender, you can use a food processor.
