There are so many recipes "out there" for making cauliflower puree, and really you don’t need a recipe, but this version from Gina is easy and quick and creamy and delicious, even cold from the fridge. (No really!) It really is just cooked cauliflower with either milk, cream, or coconut milk or cream, and a touch of seasoning. For a change, it is also great to use half broccoli and half cauliflower. I think a little freshly grated nutmeg is awesome...or cue the parmesan cheese and butter or the Truffle oil, by the truckload. YUM.
