Serving Size: 1/3 cup Number of Servings: 6 Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes
1 c. low-fat, low-sodium chicken broth
1 c. water
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1 bag (about 3 cups) frozen cauliflower florets
1 can (10 oz.) Cannellini beans or Great Northern Beans drained and rinsed
½ c. fresh grated Parmesan cheese
½ tsp. white pepper
Salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a pot, place chicken broth, water and garlic cloves. Bring to a boil, then add cauliflower florets and cover. Cook about 5-7 minutes, or until florets are soft.
Remove garlic and half the liquid. Add beans and cheese.
Using an immersion blender, blend cauliflower and beans until completely whipped. "If you don't have an immersion blender you may also blend cauliflower with either a food processor or large pitcher blender."
Place mixture in a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until liquid has reduced and mixture has thickened.
