Curried Cream of Cauliflower

As I've said before, I'm an opportunistic cook, using what I have. I made a creamed cauliflower side dish the other day, called fauxtatoes by some, due to it's low carb nature. I steamed a head of cauliflower for 15 minutes, then added it to my vita mix with 1/4 cup chicken stock, and 1/2 tsp. salt, and blended until it was smooth. Then I added about 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan, and served. It was delicious.

Having about 1 and 1/2 cup leftover, I combined the remainder with 1 cup chicken stock, 3/4 tsb curry powder, and blended until it was soup. Delicioso!

I have been impressed with your comments on Crystal's blog for a while now. I've been tempted to leave a comment before, but never followed through with my intention.

After reading your latest recipe, I thought I'd finally say hello.

My father was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes a couple of years ago. He's been able to control the disease by losing 40 pounds, changing his eating habits, and exercising regularly. He hasn't had to use medication yet. I will be sending him this idea of faux potatoes.
