Ingredients

  • 4 slices shortcut bacon

  • 6 cups cauliflower florets

  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed

  • ⅓ cup buttermilk

  • 1 tablespoon whipped butter

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • Fresh black pepper, to taste

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives, divided

  • ¼ cup shredded reduced fat cheddar

Directions

  • Cook the bacon in a pan until crisp; set aside on a paper towel then crumble.
  • Fill a large pot with water, bring to a boil and add cauliflower and garlic. Boil until the cauliflower is soft, about 15-20 minutes. Drain, and return to the pot.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Add the buttermilk, whipped butter, salt and pepper to the cauliflower and purée with a hand blender. If you don’t own a hand blender, a regular blender would work fine as well.
  • Mix in 1 tbsp of the chives and transfer to 4 individual casseroles (3/4 cups each) or one 8 x 8 casserole dish and top with cheddar and crumbled bacon. Bake in the oven until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes then top with remaining chives.
