Serves 4

Prep time: 40 mins


  • Cauliflower 2 lb

  • Water to boil the cauliflower 8 cups

  • Salt

  • Black pepper roughly ground

  • Cottage cheese 1/2 cup

  • Chives 2 tbsp

  • Unsweetened Soy Milk 3 tbsp

  • Garlic Bulb

  • Olive Oil 1 tbsp


  1. Heat the oven at 400°C, cut the head (or knob) of garlic bulb, take out most of the paper around garlic, place it in an aluminum foil. Drizzle 1 tbsp olive oil and massage the oil on the garlic bulb. Wrap the foil around the bulb and put it in the oven for 30 minutes.

  2. Add water in a big bowl and bring it to boil. Cut the cauliflower florets and add it to the boiling water add 1 1/2 tsp salt. Boil them for 8 to 10 mins till the florets are tender.

  3. Drain all the excess water and let it sit in a strainer for 10 mins. Once the temp of cauliflower reduces to a comfortable handling temp, then put it in a kitchen towel. Use your muscles to squeeze it hard and take out all the extra water out of the cauliflower florets.

  4. Take a food processor and add the roasted garlic bulb (without the skin), squeezed and drained cauliflower florets, salt 1/4 tsp (be careful and taste the salt as we added some at the time of boiling too), roughly ground pepper, cottage cheese and soy milk.

  5. Churn it well to get a creamy texture. Make sure you keep stopping the food processor in between and scrape the cauliflower and cottage cheese back in.

  6. In the last round add chives and give a short run in the food processor.

  7. Remove it in a serving bowl and garnish with chives.
