Mashed Cauliflower

If you haven’t tried this, I think you’ll really like it, and to be honest, my family can’t even tell the difference between this and mashed potatoes.  If you’re used to making mashed potatoes, this recipe is basically the same thing – if you’d rather use milk/butter or sour cream or mashed garlic whatever you prefer to make these – then just add what you’d like until you get the texture and flavor you want. 

Mashed Cauliflower
Makes about 4 servings

One head cauliflower, chopped
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter
2-4 oz cream cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

In large saucepan, add cauliflower and just cover with water, boil covered, about 10-15 minutes, until tender.  Drain thoroughly.  Mash cauliflower with hand masher on low heat (to help evaporate any extra liquid).

Add the cheese and butter and mix until well combined.

If you prefer them nice and smooth, mix with a food processor or an immersion blender.

And if you like it spicy, there's nothing stopping you from adding chopped chilies to this recipe!
1/2 cup serving = 1 veggie and maybe about 1/2 a dairy serving
