Place cauliflower and garlic in a microwave-safe bowl with about ½ inch water. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap; microwave on high until cauliflower softens, 810 minutes. Drain cauliflower and garlic.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over low heat until it becomes foamy and brown bits form on bottom of pan, swirling pan often. Off heat, swirl pan again and reserve 1 Tbsp. brown butter for drizzling.

Transfer cauliflower and garlic to a food processor; purée. Add remaining brown butter; pulse until combined. Stir in Asiago; season with salt and pepper.

Transfer Mashed Cauliflower to a serving bowl; drizzle with reserved 1 Tbsp. brown butter.
