  • 2 heads cauliflower, cut into florets (about 6-7 cups of florets)
  • 1 large clove garlic, grated
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • vegetable broth, optional
  • 1 tablespoon I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® It’s Organic!
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • freshly ground black pepper


  • ¼ cup chickpeas, drained, rinsed and dried
  • 4 brussels sprouts
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary


  1. In a large pot add cauliflower florets, grated garlic and kosher salt. Add just enough vegetable broth or water – about ½ to 1 inch from the bottom of the pot. This will help steam the cauliflower. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and put on a tight-fitting lid. Simmer just until the cauliflower is fork-tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, toss ingredients for topping on a baking sheet and spray generously with nonstick olive oil cooking spray. Roast at 450° for 15 minutes, until Brussels sprouts and chickpeas are crispy and crunchy. Remove and let rest.
  3. Drain cauliflower and add it to a food processor along with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® It’s Organic!, Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper. Process until smooth and creamy.
  4. Scoop mashed cauliflower into a bowl, top with roasted Brussels sprouts, chickpeas, extra sprinkles of Parmesan cheese and added black pepper if desired. Serve hot!

Serves 8.
