Cauliflower is a mild vegetable that can take on many different flavors to work well in a variety of recipes. In this recipe, the cauliflower is sauteed with garlic then pureed into a smooth cream. This cauliflower cream is the base for tender jumbo shrimp. The shrimp are cooked in a truffle-infused oil which gives them a savory and bold flavor that works perfectly with the cauliflower. Earthy pine nuts add a little bit of crunch, a final drizzle of truffle oil and a sprinkle of oregano are finishing touches.

So easy, healthy, and delicious I roasted my cauliflower rather than boiling and it gave the dish a bit more color. The truffle oil makes it amazing
