Almost Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients

6 cups cauliflower

4 ounces cream cheese

1 teaspoon garlic

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation

1. Cut the cauliflower into pieces and rinse with water. 

2. Place the cauliflower pieces in a microwave safe dish, cover and cook on high for 8-10 

minutes or until soft. 

3. Drain off moisture from the cooked cauliflower.  

4. Carefully place the hot cauliflower in a blender and blend until smooth.  

5. Add the cream cheese, garlic and pepper.  Blend to combine ingredients.  

6. Remove mixture from the blender and serve hot. 

Helpful hints:

One medium head cauliflower yields 6 cups. 

Garlic powder may be substituted for the minced garlic. 

Since cauliflower is bland like potatoes, this recipe tastes similar to mashed potatoes.  The potassium content is 100 mg lower per serving.  

To reduce fat content, use light cream cheese.  Protein, sodium and potassium and phosphorus content will be slightly higher.
