Start by steaming the cauliflower and garlic. Fill a stockpot with one to two inches of water, place the steamer basket in the pot, and then throw the cauliflower florets and peeled garlic into the basket. Place a lid on the pot, and let it steam for 10 minutes or so until the cauliflower is tender.
Drain the cauliflower and garlic, and then transfer everything into your food processor. Add the thyme, and season generously with salt and pepper.
Turn on the food processor, and as it's doing its thing, drizzle in 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil. Process until smooth.
Taste and season again as necessary.
Transfer to a bowl, and garnish with chopped chives and a drizzle of olive oil. Enjoy!
