Ingredients

1 head cauliflower (about 1 1/2 pounds), roughly chopped

One 15-ounce can cannellini beans with their liquid

1/3 cup milk

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary

1/4 cup grated Parmesan

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Put the cauliflower, beans, milk, butter and rosemary in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer, cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the cauliflower is fork tender, about 15 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking until the cauliflower is soft, but not mushy, about 10 minutes. Mash with a potato masher, then stir in the grated Parmesan. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and a couple turns of pepper. Serve sprinkled with the shaved Parmesan and topped with a fresh rosemary sprig.
