Photo: Jan Smith
Yield 8 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)
Similar to mashed potatoes, this side dish features a slightly coarser texture and yet a more delicate taste. Roasting on high heat deepens the cauliflower flavor.

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3 pounds fresh cauliflower, cut into florets (about 8 1/2 cups)
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 cup 1% low-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
