Ingredients

1
head cauliflower, separated into florets
3
cloves garlic
1/3
cup low-fat milk
3
tablespoons light butter
5
tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1
to 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives

Directions

  • 1 In large saucepan or skillet, place steamer basket in 1/2 inch water (water should not touch bottom of basket). Place cauliflower and garlic in basket. Cover tightly; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; steam 8 to 12 minutes or until tender.
  • 2 Transfer cauliflower and garlic to large bowl; add milk, 2 tablespoons of the butter, 3 tablespoons of the cheese, the salt and pepper. Blend with potato masher or electric mixer until creamy, adding more milk if necessary. Sprinkle with chives.
  • 3 Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter; drizzle over cauliflower mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons cheese. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

Don’t have a steamer basket? Use the microwave instead. In large microwavable dish or bowl, place cauliflower, garlic and 2 tablespoons water. Cover (or cover with microwavable plastic wrap); microwave on High about 8 minutes, stirring once or twice, until tender. Let stand 1 to 2 minutes; drain. Continue as directed.

You can make this dish ahead and refrigerate until serving. Reheat in the microwave, then drizzle with melted butter and top with Parmesan.
