Directions

  1. Set up a steamer in a pot with an inch of water. Place the cauliflower and garlic cloves in the steamer, cover and cook over medium heat until the cauliflower is very tender, about 15-20 minutes.

Chef Tips

If getting enough calories is an issue, you can bulk this up by mashing in some boiled Yukon gold potato with the cauliflower. Quarter 2 small or cut one medium potato into a large dice, and cook them while the cauliflower is steaming. If your mouth is sore, blend with a little butter to smooth it.
