Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Mash

Garlic is an ingredient that makes Cauliflower puree really awesome. Roasted garlic is even better. You can buy garlic already roasted off of an olive bar, or in a jar, but making our own roasted garlic is not hard at all. Simply cut the top off of an entire head of garlic, drizzle on a bit of olive oil, wrap in foil, and roast on 350 for 45 minutes. Roasted garlic can be used in recipes or simply spread on crackers. Roasted garlic is the perfect compliment to a cauliflower puree. If you eat dairy, this recipe would be amazing with the addition of cheese.
