Ingredients:  
1 large cauliflower
4 or 5 thinly sliced garlic cloves
Salt to taste
Fresh-ground black pepper to taste
1 Tbs butter at room temperature (high quality butter is best, like Plugra brand or other rich European butter)

Directions:
Break the cauliflower into florets and place in a steamer or a microwave-safe dish. Add the sliced garlic, a little salt to taste, and just enough water for steaming or microwaving. Cover and cook until very tender, so that a knife easily slides into a piece of cauliflower. Drain well, then place the cauliflower and garlic in a food processor. Add the butter and olive oil, puree until smooth. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and either nutmeg, dillweed or blue cheese if desired.
