How to Make Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes Vegan

I love butter in mashed potatoes, however extra virgin olive oil is very good too. It has strong full-bodied taste unlike milder tasting avocado oil, for example. I believe you don’t need to add Parmesan cheese, buttermilk or sour cream to regular potatoes, especially to cauliflower, to make it tasty. Good quality olive oil and that pureed cooked garlic will add so much flavour!
