  • 1 head cauliflower rinsed and separated into small florets
  • 1/2 head garlic separated and peeled, about 6 cloves
  • 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup nonfat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup low fat milk
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • In a large bowl, toss the cauliflower florets and peeled garlic cloves in the olive oil until well coated. Spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet pan sprayed with nonstick spray.
  • Roast the cauliflower and garlic in the oven until the cauliflower and garlic are lightly browned and tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Put the roasted cauliflower and garlic cloves into a food processor along with the sour cream and milk. Pulse to puree the mixture until it is smooth. Season with salt, pepper and onion powder. Serve warm.
