Mashed Cauliflower

Summer is back in full force and we are trying to take advantage of some of the great fruits and veggies that this time of year brings.

Here's one of our summertime recipes.

Mashed Cauliflower

One head of cauliflower, cleaned and florets cut off
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Put 1/2 cup of water in a large microwave bowl and add the cauliflower florets.  Cook on high for six minutes or until soft.

Drain and pat dry with paper towels.  Don't let it cool!

Put back into a bowl with the garlic, cream cheese, butter and parmesan cheese.  Blend with a stick blender or an immersion blender until smooth.

Serve as you would mashed potatoes. 

It's a nice change from the root vegetables we eat all winter!  The kids love it and the husband eats it (smothered in hot sauce. . .ick!).
