Mashed Cauliflower with Roasted Garlic (Melanie Young)

This versatile recipe is from my friend, the talented Chef Maria Loi, owner, Loi Estiatorio in New York City. Chef Loi is a passionate ambassador on the healthy benefits of the Mediterranean diet and is author of “The Greek Diet.” The dish is as creamy as mashed potatoes without the starchiness.
Heart healthy olive oil is used instead of butter. Greek yogurt is an excellent probiotic to aid digestive health. If you are sensitive to garlic (I am), omit and season with more chives, salt and pepper to taste. For a cheesier flavor, add two tablespoons grated parmesan. If you are vegan, substitute almond milk for yogurt and add another tablespoon or two of olive oil to adjust to desired texture and flavor.
