    Mashed Potatoes

    Every relationship gets stuck in a rut. Spice up your love affair with this cauliflower version of mashed potatoes.

    8 cups bite-size cauliflower florets (about 1 head)
    4 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
    1/3 cup nonfat buttermilk (see Tip)
    4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    1 teaspoon butter
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    Snipped fresh chives for garnish

    1. Place cauliflower florets and garlic in a steamer basket over boiling water, cover and steam until very tender, 12 to 15 minutes. (Alternatively, place florets and garlic in a microwave-safe bowl with 1/4 cup water, cover and microwave on High for 3 to 5 minutes.)
    2. Place the cooked cauliflower and garlic in a food processor. Add buttermilk, 2 teaspoons oil, butter, salt and pepper; pulse several times, then process until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a serving bowl. Drizzle with the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and garnish with chives, if desired. Serve hot.
