1 head cauliflower
handful fresh garlic (optional)
parmesan or other hard, white cheese, grated
salt & pepper
Steam cauliflower and garlic until cauliflower is al dente. Do not overcook. Drain well (the less liquid in the final product the better). Mash by hand or with a boat motor. Add remaining ingredients, adjust seasonings, and serve.
Crumbled bacon or chopped scallions/chives would also be good in this. If you don't mind blasting your co-irkers and friends with vile breath, throw in a clove or two of minced raw garlic at the end.
