INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups finely chopped (or grated) raw cauliflower
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup Mascarpone cheese
  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup prepared basil pesto

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Combine the cauliflower, butter, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a microwave safe bowl.
  2. Microwave on high for six minutes – or until the cauliflower is tender and done to your liking.
  3. Add the mascarpone cheese and microwave on high for 2 more minutes.
  4. Add the parmesan cheese and stir until fully blended and creamy. Cool for 2 minutes (so you don’t cook the pesto when you add it and lose the green color.)
  5. Stir in the basil pesto and serve warm.
