- Prep Time 5 minutes
- Total Time 20 minutes
- Serves 4
- 1 head (1 3/4 pounds) cauliflower, stem and tough stalks trimmed, florets roughly chopped
- 1 cup water or chicken stock, preferably homemade
- 2 to 3 tablespoons sour cream
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
For the Seasoning
- Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- Combine cauliflower and water or chicken stock in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until cauliflower is very tender, about 10 minutes.
- Using a slotted spoon, transfer cauliflower to the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth, adding 1 to 2 tablespoons cooking liquid, 15 to 20 seconds. Add sour cream and butter, and process 5 to 10 seconds more. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
- For a garnish, saute a few sliced cauliflower florets in a bit of butter until tender and lightly golden.
