For this recipe you will need:
1 head of cauliflower
1 clove of minced garlic-about one tsp
1/8 tsp of white pepper/salt
2 tbsp of butter
Bring a pot of water to boil (~4 cups) and place washed head of cauliflower (leaves removed) in the pot (alternatively may dice up head and place in vegetable steamer). Cook the cauliflower until very fork soft. Drain well. Puree the cauliflower with the butter, garlic. Salt and pepper to taste. Try topping it with paprika and/or rosemary.*
1 1/4 cups = 1 block of carbs and 2 blocks of fat.
I love these. One tip I got from George Stella on the food network is that a touch of cream cheese seems to really smooth them out (although it does naturally add a little more fat)
