Ingredients 

1⅓ lb fresh cauliflower
¾ cup all-purpose flour
⅓ cup tapioca starch
1½ Tbsp cane sugar
1½ tsp minced garlic cloves
¾ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
⅓ cup evaporated skim milk
⅓ cup lite coconut milk
¼ cup toasted coconut flakes
3 Tbsp sliced almonds
1½ tsp canola oil
4 tsp sliced, toasted almonds

Instructions 
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Lightly coat a baking sheet with canola oil spray.
  2. Cut cauliflower into very small florets and steam for 5 to 8 minutes until soft. Cool.
