Cauliflower Mash

Served with Lemon Garlic Chicken and asparagus.

I actually think that cauliflower mash is better than mashed potatoes. The consistency is better than you think it would be. Its creamy and soft. The flavor is delicious…so much better than when cauliflower is just cooked whole. If you haven’t tried this, then do it. It is easier and tastier than you think!

1 whole cauliflower
1 1/2 T. reduced fat cream cheese
2 T. milk
1 T. butter
salt and pepper

Cut cauliflower into pieces and steam over the stove until the cauliflower is tender, like 10 minutes. Drain any water in the pot. Add the remaining ingredients and puree. I use a puree wand, but if you don’t have that you could transfer everything into a food processor and pulse until combine and creamy. Serve warm.

p.s don’t use an electric mixer like you would with mashed potatoes.
