Whipped Cauliflower, Low-Carb

Rated as 4.46 out of 5 Stars

"Finally mastered this dish after about a dozen tries! Great low-carb side dish to replace mashed potatoes. Like I said above, I have made this at least a dozen times and feel I have perfected it! Fool around with it some, but I have found these ingredients, cutting as much stem off, and squeezing all the water out really make this delicious! You can add a splash of milk to make it even creamier."

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook cauliflower florets in the boiling water until they are extremely tender, about 10 minutes; drain in a colander. Put several paper towels on top of the cauliflower and use back of a big bowl to press down and squeeze as much liquid from the cauliflower as you can.
  2. Mix Parmesan cheese, cream cheese, chicken soup base, roasted garlic, and butter in a bowl. Add cauliflower to the cheese mixture; beat with an electric hand mixer until creamy, about 3 minutes. Beat milk into the mixture until you get your desired texture. Season with salt and pepper.

Delicious! I added some chopped garlic and omitted the broth (didn't have any) so used a little extra milk to compensate. Like others said, I steamed the cauliflower, so didn't think I needed to...

This was my first attempt at making this recipe. I thought it was good but not as creamy as i was expecting. I would like to try this with cheese and bacon bits and take the garlic out.
