It is still National Garlic Month! A perfect month for the garlic lovers of the world!

Here is another garlic recipe for the themed month. The co-star in the recipe is cauliflower. The new-found love for cauliflower is weird for me. I grew up running from this veggie as fast as I could. Now, it’s everyone’s friend and in EVERYTHING!

I have adapted, I think. Or is it that today’s cauliflower tastes better than the version from my youth? LOL

It’s anyone’s guess…🤷🏽‍♀️

Back to the garlic and cauliflower mash recipe….

This tasty cauliflower mash pairs well with a large number of beef, pork, chicken, and plant-based entrees. Plus, it comes together in under 30 minutes, so it is perfect for those busy weeknights when you want to get a healthy dinner on the table without too much fuss.

ProTip: Steaming the garlic along with the cauliflower will remove the raw edge and make it more tender.
