Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
  • 1 large head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • ½ c light whipped cream cheese
  • ⅓ cup crumbled blue cheese (go for a semi-strong flavored cheese - you want it to stand out!)
  • 1 tsp salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • ¼ fresh parsley, chopped
  1. Steam the cauliflower for about 7 minutes or until falling apart when pierced with a fork. Drain well - you want as much of that water to gone as possible.
  2. Return cauliflower to pot and mash with potato masher or fork until each floret is completely smashed and broken down.
  3. Add in cream cheese, blue cheese, dried thyme and Parmesan cheese - mix until all the cheeses are completely melted in. Cook for about 5 minutes on medium-low heat - this helps evaporate any leftover water from the steaming process.
  4. Taste and then add the salt and pepper as needed.
  5. Just prior to serving, stir in the chopped parsley. Serve warm!
