1 large cauliflower head, cut into florets
12-15 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon chopped chives
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
On a baking sheet, toss the cauliflower and garlic cloves with 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil. Season with kosher salt and roast for 20-25 minutes until tender and golden brown. Stir and turn every 5-10 minutes.
Transfer the roasted cauliflower and garlic to a large bowl. Add an additional 1 tablespoon olive oil and garlic powder. Using a potato masher or ricer, mash the cauliflower until it reaches an even consistency.
