Why I Love This Recipe

Cauliflower substitute for mashed potatoes.

This recipe came from a Lo-Carb cookbook, but I can't remember which one, could the the South Beach Diet.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 medium head cauliflower
1 Tbsp. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/8 tsp. straight chicken base or bouillon (may substitute 1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. chopped fresh or dry chives, for garnish
3 Tbsp. unsalted butter


Set a stockpot of water to boil over high heat.

Clean and cut cauliflower into small pieces. Cook the cauliflower in boiling water for about 6 minutes, or until well done. Drain well; do not let cool and pat cooked cauliflower very dry between several layers of paper towels.

In a bowl with an immersion blender, or in a food processor, puree the hot cauliflower with the cream cheese, Parmesan, garlic, chicken base, and pepper, until almost smooth. Garnish with chives, and serve hot with pats of butter.
