Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower, quartered
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 16 Ounces white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 Cup vegetable broth
  • Salt, to taste
  • 3 Tablespoons chopped parsley

Directions

Place the cauliflower in a steam basket and place on top of a pot filled with 2 1/2 inches of water. Turn heat to medium-high, cover, and steam until fork-tender, about 10 minutes. (To steam in the microwave: place cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl, add 1/4 cup water, and cook on high for 3-5 minutes.)

Heat the oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, but not brown, 3-5 minutes. Remove the garlic.

In a food processor, combine the cauliflower, white beans, garlic-infused olive oil, and vegetable broth. Purée until smooth. Transfer to a serving bowl, season with salt, and stir in parsley.
