    cckarl's Note:

    When I first made this recipe, I couldn't wait to have my friends who aren't on a low carb diet try it - because you literally can't taste that it's not potatoes! And I was right! They didn't believe me that it was cauliflower and kept on trying to steal more bites of it at lunch. It's SO rich and creamy, and with a bite from the garlic and fresh basil, I guarantee you're going to be making this every night (I do!) You don't even need salt or pepper.

    1. 1
      Clean and cut up cauliflower and add into a pot of boiling, salted water.
    2. 2
      Boil for about 15 minutes but don't let the cauliflower get too soggy. It should still be firm when you take it out.
    3. 3
      Drain very well.
    4. 4
      In a food processor add in the basil, garlic cloves (2 if you like a nice bite!), parmesan and course until well blended.
    5. 5
      Then add in the neufchatel cheese and the cooked cauliflower.
    6. 6
      Pulse until smooth and serve!
    7. 7
      (Optional: I like to run a knife through a few sundried tomatoes and add for taste and color - makes a very Italian low carb meal!).

      I have not written a review before on a recipe. But this is the exception to the rule! I have done a similar recipe following the South Beach Diet, and it was good, but does not compare to this. I think it is the cheeses that bring out the flavor. I did not use the sun dried tomatoes, but I am sure it would be absolutely wonderful with this addition. I followed the recipe to the letter with the ingredients listed, but I sauteed the basil and garlic together to soften the vegetable mixture. The best recipe!! You will not be disappointed.
