2 10 ounce packages frozen cauliflower (or fresh – same amount)
1 Teaspoon boullion granules (low sodium variety)
1/8 Teaspoon black pepper (or more to taste)
1 Tablespoon minced onion flakes (can omit)
1 Teaspoon butter
2 Tablespoons Cream (appx – add slowly)
How to Prepare

Process until well blended, adding cream as necessary. You must be careful when adding cream. Add a little at a time to desired consistiency (leave some lumps if you like!) You can also use a blender to puree but a food processor is much easier.
Spray an ovenproof dish (approximately 1 1/2 quart size for this recipe) with cooking spray and put mixture in. Sprinkle with paprika if you like for additional flavor and a delightful color.
Bake for at least 20 minutes until hot.
