Comfort Food (minus the guilt)

My go to comfort food would have to be a nice big bowl of garlic and cheese mashed potatoes. But who needs all those calories? Not very comforting. My recipe for today is Guilt Free Mashed Cauliflower.
About 6 cups of boiled cauliflower
1 med head cauliflower, washed, trimmed and chopped roughly
1/4 salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp almond or rice milk (original or unsweetened)
2 tbsp Earth Balance
Dash black pepper
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp garlic salt (optional)
After blending, about 4 cups cauliflower
1/4 cup daiya soy cheese cheddar style (optional)

Bring pot of water to boil and add salt
Either steam or boil cauliflower until soft (should take abot 20 minutes)
Strain cauliflower and transfer to food processor or blender.
Pulse a few times
Add in garlic, salt, and earth balance,
with blender on add your 2 tbsp of almond milk
If it isn't blending try scraping the bowl and starting a few times, 
if still not blending, add a touch more almond milk.
Add a dash of pepper and the thyme, (garlic salt, if using)
and pulse until incorporated.
Top with Soy Cheddar cheese (if using)
Serve hot, and enjoy:)
