Mashed Cauliflower

Guess what? You can serve this to your family to fit in more vegetables and they will never know it is not mashed potatoes! Try it out for yourself! It is delicious. It can be used as a side dish with most meals. This night, I happen to serve it with sauteed chicken and a salad.

Serves: 4 generous portions

1 large head of cauliflower
1 tsp unsalted butter
1 Tbs garlic
1 Tbs cream cheese or marscapone cheese
1/3 cup freshly shredded parmesan cheese
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1. Bring a large pot of water to boil.
2. Cut cauliflower florets from large stem and cut into larger pieces that are around the same size. Place in pot of boiling water and cook until tender, approximately 10 minutes.
3. Drain
4. Melt butter in a small skillet over low heat. Add garlic and saute 1 minute. Remove from heat.
5. Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Remove to a bowl. Stir and serve!
