Mashed Cauliflower (Fake Potatoes!)

For best results, serve this in a bowl, as it tends to turn out a bit runnier than traditional potatoes. However, the taste of these fake potatoes trumps consistency any day. This side dish goes well with pork chops, turkey meat loaf, or grilled chicken breasts. 

Yield: 8 servings 

2 fresh cauliflower crowns
2 cloves garlic, pressed (Optional, Group C only)
2-4 tablespoons butter (to taste)
1/4 cup (more or less) heavy whipping cream
Real Salt or sea salt and pepper to taste

1.  Boil or steam cauliflower in a large pot until you can easily slice a fork through the crowns. Drain and set aside.
2.   Add butter and garlic to the large pot on medium heat. Sautee until garlic turns clear. If not using garlic, simply add softened butter to drained cauliflower and continue with step 3.
3.   Add cauliflower and whipping cream. Using electric beaters, mix on medium speed until creamy, and remove from heat.
4. Add salt, pepper, and serve warm with additional butter, or gravy (recipe on next page).
