Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Mash

This creamy and silky Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Mash will blow your mind!  The texture is perfectly creamy and mimics mashed potatoes.  The flavor of the cauliflower when pureed like this is so mild, it completely takes on the beautiful aromatic roasted garlic and the chicken bouillon flavoring.  It's delicious by itself or with a savory sauce or gravy!  #cauliflowermash #glutenfree #easysides
