Pureed Cauliflower with Roasted Garlic

This pureed cauliflower with roasted garlic is so good, and I am telling you, you could serve this, and your guests would swear it’s creamy mashed potatoes.  It’s so good!  Of course, you can adjust the ingredients to make it completely vegan and super low cal.  For instance, use Almond Milk in place of the stock and butter.   It’s very adaptable and surprisingly delicious.   I’m happy to say this gets a big Loon Approval!
