    Yum, this was unexpectably delicious! I steamed the cauliflower until the pieces were very soft, drained then placed the cauliflower back in the same pot (deep enough that the vegetable won't splatter when blended). Added the other ingredients which included white pepper (although skipped the veggie broth) and I included both fresh rosemary and chives from our garden. I used Oregon-made regular cream cheese and one tablespoon combo of olive oil and butter. Pureed with an immersion blender, using a small amount of the saved cooking liquid to help puree the cauliflower and plated on a bed of baby arugula. Finally garnished with fresh cracked black pepper, salt and chive blossom. Very good! Made for Veg Tag/June.

    I used veggie broth and can't get vegan cream cheese here, so used regular cream cheese. Delicious and different. Made for Vegetarian Swap-June 2012.
