Ingredients

  • 2 medium heads cauliflower

  • 1/2 cup chicken stock

  • 6 large garlic cloves, chopped

  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream 

  • 3 Tbs. butter

Preparation

  1. Remove cores from cauliflower, trim ends from core, and chop core into small pieces. Chop florets into small pieces. Transfer to medium pot, and add chicken stock. Cover, and cook on medium until soft, 10–12 minutes. Stock should be mostly evaporated.

  3. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with chives. Serve immediately.
