Select ingredients:


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the cauliflower and cook for 10 minutes or until soft and tender. Drain.

  3. Add the cauliflower, butter and garlic mixture, milk, cheese, salt and pepper to a food processor and process until smooth.
  4. Transfer the cauliflower mixture to a serving bowl and mix in the chives and thyme. Serve immediately.

Recipe Tip: For a thicker consistency, steam the cauliflower for 7-9 minutes in a pot with a steamer basket to reduce the amount of liquid.
