Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Put potatoes in a large Dutch oven, then add garlic and cauliflower. Pour broth over mixture. Cover and bring to a boil over high. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until vegetables are tender, about 12 minutes. Drain.

  • Transfer half of cauliflower mixture to a food processor. Secure lid on food processor, and remove center piece to allow steam to escape. Place a clean towel over opening. Process until smooth, 45 seconds to 1 minute. Transfer to a serving bowl. Process remaining cauliflower mixture in food processor, and process until smooth, 45 seconds to 1 minute. Add yogurt, butter, salt, and pepper; process until smooth, about 30 seconds. Add to serving bowl; stir to combine. Garnish with chives and additional pepper.
