      Mock Mashed Garlic Potatoes

      Ingredients:

      • 1 medium head cauliflower
      • 1 tablespoon cream cheese, softened
      • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
      • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
      • 1/8 teaspoon straight chicken base or bullion (may substitute 1/2 teaspoon salt)
      • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
      • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh or dry chives, for garnish
      • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

      Directions:

      • Set a stockpot of water to boil over high heat
      • Clean and cut cauliflower into small piece. 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 addling a little fresh rosemary for a whole new taste
