- 3 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
- 1 cauliflower head, cut into pieces
- sea salt (himalayan or celtic)
- 1⁄2 cup white wine
- 6 cups vegetable stock (unsweetened)
- 4 fresh thyme sprigs (or 1 teaspoon dried)
- 1 cup non-dairy milk (coconut, rice, almond, hemp)
- 1 TB fresh lemon juice
- In a large saucepan or pot, heat the oil over medium heat and then add the onions and garlic, cooking until translucent and tender (about 5 minutes).
- Add the cauliflower and a pinch of sea salt and cook, stirring continuously for another 5 minutes.
- Add the white wine, vegetable stock and thyme and reduce heat to low, covering and cooking until cauliflower is tender (12-15 minutes).
