    Directions

    1. Fill a large pot with water, put it on to boil, and salt it. Boil the cauliflower until very tender, about 15 minutes. Drain, reserving about a cup of the cooking water. Wipe the pot dry.
    2. Put the milk, butter, and cheese in the pot over medium-low heat. Sprinke with salt and pepper and the nutmeg. Cook, stirring occasionally to keep the mixture from sticking, until the cheese and butter start to melt, 3 to 5 minutes.
    3. Stir in the cauliflower and mash with a fork or potato masher; stir well to combine. The mixture should be the consistency you like in mashed potatoes. If its not creamy enough, add a little of the cauliflower cooking water or more milk or cream until it is.
    4. Taste and adjust the seasoning, garnish and serve.
