  1. Remove stem and any green leaves from cauliflower and cut it into bite size florets.
  2. In a large pot over medium heat, with about 1 inch of water added to the bottom, add florets and cover to steam them.
  3. Steam about 6-9 minutes until cauliflower is knife-tender.
  4. Drain out any remaining water and remove from the heat.
  5. Add in garlic powder, salt, pepper, almond milk, cream cheese and 1 cup of shredded cheese and stir well to combine.
  6. Preheat oven to broil at 450’F.
