  1. Place a steamer into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower, cover and steam until tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Transfer the cauliflower and garlic to a food processor, add the olive oil, salt and pepper, and puree until smooth.
  3. Sever immediately with a sprinkle of chives and a dash of freshly ground pepper.

Tips & Notes

No food processor? No problem. You can also use a potato masher or hand blender. Go ahead and store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to three days.
