1 cup of water
3 heads of cauliflower, 6' diameter each (about 10 cups), chopped
3 cups yellow onion, chopped
9 cloves (3 Tbsp.) garlic, minced
3 Tbsp. 1/3 less fat cream cheese
1 Tbsp. light, whipped butter
(We used Land O Lakes Whippd Light Butter.)

1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper, ground
1.5 packets (4g. per packet) Herb ox Sodium Free Chicken Bouillon
6 Tbsp. green onion (scallions), chopped
1. Put 1 cup of water in a large non-stick pot and heat to a boil. Add cauliflower, onions and garlic to the pot. Boil for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until cauliflower is soft.
2. Pour in the remaining ingredients and blend with a hand blender. If you don't have a hand blender, mix the ingredients in the pot; then put them into a blender or food processor and mix until small chunks remain. It'll look like mashed potatoes with bigger lumps.
3. Divide into 6 one-cup servings and top each with a tablespoon of chopped green onions.
