Cook the cauliflower on the stove or in the microwave.
Stove method: Boil a pot of water with a tablespoon (14 g) of salt. Add the cauliflower, and simmer until very soft (about 5-6 minutes). Drain well.
Microwave method: Place the cauliflower florets in a large bowl with 2 tablespoons of water. Cover with plastic wrap, so that the plastic is not touching the cauliflower. Microwave on high for about 10 minutes, until very soft, stirring halfway through. Drain well.
Meanwhile, place the garlic, melted butter, and milk/cream into a food processor or high power blender.
Note: If you want to, you can saute the garlic first to mellow the flavor a bit.
When the cauliflower is done cooking, drain well. Squeeze out as much extra water as possible. You can do this by wrapping the cauliflower in a towel and twisting, or by pressing a bowl down over a strainer.
Add the cauliflower to the food processor or blender. Process until smooth, scraping down the sides with a spatula occasionally. Add salt and pepper to taste, and puree again. If it's thicker than you like, thin out with more milk/cream.
Stir in the chopped chives.
Serving size: 1/4 of the entire recipe
The exact serving size will depend on the size of your head of cauliflower, but a serving is about 1/2 to 3/4 cup.
