Peel the Butternut Squash with a vegetable peeler. Using a large knife, cut off both ends and slice in half. Remove the seeds with a spoon then cut squash into 1 1/2 inch cubes. Rinse the cauliflower and pat dry. Cut into 2 inch pieces.
Place a large piece of aluminum foil (large enough to fold over to create a top) into a 9 X 13 baking pan. Spray with olive oil spray. Place butternut squash and cauliflower on foil and add 3 cloves of whole garlic (with skin on). Season with no salt seasoning, a pinch of black pepper and a pinch of sea salt. Pour 2 tablespoons of extra virgin oil over all of the veggies. Use a large wooden spoon and move the veggies around to coat all with the seasoning and oil.
Note: You can also put the veggies in a large bowl, add the seasoning and oil
and use your hands to coat everything then put it all into the baking pan.
Fold over foil to create a large pocket. Place into oven and cook for 30 minutes. Carefully uncover veggies and cook for 15 minutes more allowing them to roast, creating a caramelized flavor.
Once they are fork tender they are done and it's time to make your mash.
In a food processor, place all of the butternut and cauliflower. Remove the roasted garlic and peel of the skin. Place the garlic into the processor with the butternut and cauliflower. Add unsalted butter, Almond milk and cream cheese. Pulse for 1 minute. Add the parmigiano, 3 tablespoons of vegetable stock, 1/2 tsp ground black pepper and a pinch of sea salt. Pulse for 1 minute more until you have a smooth mash. (You can add a pinch or two of red pepper flakes for an added kick)
(Note: Add as much vegetable stock as needed if mash is not smooth or too dry.)
