  4. Cook the cauliflower and garlic at the highest pressure setting, according to manufacturer’s instructions, for three minutes.
  5. When the time is up, use the fast release method (rinsing the pot in cold water) until the pressure is released and you can remove the lid.  Pick out the garlic cloves and set aside. Place the cooked cauliflower in a large food processor and pulse until roughly chopped.
