  • 3 Roasted garlic cloves 
  • 1 Tsp. Fresh thyme leaves  
  • 1 Tsp. fresh chives, chopped  
  • Salt and pepper, to taste 

DIRECTIONS 

  1. FILL A LARGE saucepan with an inch of water and insert a steamer basket. Bring to a boil and add cauliflower florets. Reduce heat to a simmer and cover, allowing cauliflower to steam 6 to 8 minutes or until fork-tender.
  2. DRAIN THE STEAMED cauliflower and transfer to the bowl of a large food processor. Add in the roasted garlic cloves and seasonings. Process to your desired texture.

  4. PLACE THE BULB in tin foil, drizzle with coconut oil, and massage.
  5. WRAP TIGHTLY AND bake 25 to 35 minutes or until the cloves are soft. Allow to cool before removing cloves.
