This is a delicious carb-conscious alternative to mashed potatoes.

 

Ingredients

1 large head cauliflower

1/3 cup cream

4 oz cream cheese

1 Tbl butter

salt and pepper

 

Directions

Simmer the cauliflower in water with the cream added to it. (This keeps the cauliflower sweet and prevents it from turning color). When cauliflower is soft, drain thoroughly. Put the still warm cauliflower in a food processor with the cream cheese, butter and salt and pepper to taste and process until smooth. (You may have to do this in more than one batch.)

 

Variation: Add a few cloves of garlic to the cooking water or some roasted garlic to the food processor when blending.
