What You Need
1 medium head cauliflower
1 tablespoon vegan cream cheese, softened

3 tablespoons vegan butter
How to Make It
Set a stockpot of water to boil over high heat.
Clean and cut cauliflower into small pieces. Cook in boiling water for about 6 minutes, or until well done. Drain well. Do not let cool, and pat cooked cauliflower very dry between several layers of paper towels.

Garnish with chives, and serve hot with pats of butter. Yummmm.
