Mock Mashed Potatoes (Cauliflower)
1 medium head cauliflower
1 tablespoon non-fat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic or roasted garlic
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh or dry chives, for garnish
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 non-fat Greek yogurt, Parmesan, garlic, salt and pepper until almost smooth. Garnish with chives.
Hint: Try roasting the garlic and adding a little fresh rosemary for a whole new taste.
