This is a great recipe for using cauliflower! It's a healthy alternative to mashed potatoes and tastes just as great.

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 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 adding a little fresh rosemary for a whole new taste.
