Spicy Mock Mashed Potatoes

Kathleen and I really enjoyed these. They were a good substitute for mashed potatoes.

Spicy Mock Mashed Potatoes

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons chipotle hot sauce
1 medium head of cauliflower
1 ounce low-fat cream cheese
1/2 cup lower-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium-low heat; saute the onions until golden, about 20 minutes. Add the garlic and saute 1 minute more; stir in hot sauce. Meanwhile, cut up and clean cauliflower, then steam in a medium saucepan with lid, until soft, about 10 minutes. Drain well then transfer to food processor along with the cream cheese, chicken broth and Parmesan cheese. Puree until smooth. To serve spoon cauliflower mixture into a serving bowl, then top with the sauted onions.
