Garlic Mashed Cauliflower
Here is a fabulous “clean eating” alternative to mashed potatoes. Adding a little parmesan and cream cheese to this garlic mashed cauliflower gives it tons on flavor with fewer carbs.
I can not believe how much this cauliflower tastes just like mashed potatoes. If you’d like, you can also easily vary this by adding shredded low-fat cheese or making it more traditional with a little milk and butter if you’d like.
INGREDIENTS, makes 4 servings
1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into small pieces.
1 tablespoon cream cheese
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 clove of garlic, minced
⅛ teaspoon chicken bullion powder
⅛ teaspoon black pepper
How to Make Garlic Mashed Cauliflower
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil.
Add the cauliflower to the boiling water and cook for about 10 minutes or until tender.
Drain well in a colander. Pat dry with paper towels to remove any excess water.
Place hot cauliflower in a food processor.
Add the garlic, cream cheese, Parmesan, chicken bullion and pepper.
Puree for about 2 minutes or until almost smooth.
Garnish with chives, and serve hot.
