We use this brand from Auto Mercado since it only has two ingredients: coconut and water. No preservatives or gum thickeners. Place your can of coconut milk in the fridge over night (or in the freeze for an hour if you’re in a hurry) and scrap off the harden cream to use as a replacement in this recipe).

 

Directions:

Divide cauliflower into florets that are all roughly the same size and steam until tender (we use the microwave to steam because its the fastest).

Meanwhile, melt the butter and warm the cream. You can heat them together in a pan on the stove or in the microwave.
