Cauliflower Mousse

From: Spa Cuisine at Home, Chef Nadine, BCAE class

Low in calories in fat, this makes for a healthy, creamy-tasting side that pairs easily with many dishes and is a nice change from your regular-old mashed potatoes.

Serves: 7

  • 1 head of cauliflower (1 quart raw)
  • 6 oz Neufchatel cheese
  • 3 egg whites
  1. Cut the cauliflower into small pieces and steam until just tender to the bite.
  2. In a food processor, combine the egg whites and cheese and blend until smooth.
  3. When the cauliflower is finsihed, add it immediately (while still hot) to the egg & cheese puree in the processor. Puree until smooth and looks like mashed potatoes.
  4. Serve hot.
Notes: It's important to keep the cauliflower hot, since it needs to cook the egg.
