Makes: 4 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes

 

Ingredients:

1 medium head Cauliflower
1 tbs Low Fat Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 cup grated Low Fat Parmesan
1/2 tsp Minced Garlic
1/8 tsp reduced sodium Straight Chicken Base or Bullion (may substitute 1/2 teaspoon salt)
1/8 tsp freshly Ground Black Pepper
1/2 tsp chopped fresh or dry Chives, for Garnish
1 tbs unsalted Butter

 

Directions:

Set a stockpot of water to boil over high heat.

Clean and cut cauliflower into small pieces.  Cook 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.

Hint: Try roasting the garlic and adding a little fresh rosemary for a whole new taste.
