This dish can be served as an alternative to mashed potatoes.



2 cups (1-inch) cubed French bread (about 3 [1-ounce] slices)

5 cups cauliflower florets

2 tablespoons reduced-calorie margarine, divided

Olive oil-flavored cooking spray

2/3 cup chopped onion

2 garlic cloves, minced

3 tablespoons water

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon white pepper


Preheat oven to 375°.


Place bread cubes in a food processor; pulse until finely ground. Set aside.


Steam the cauliflower, covered, 13 minutes or until tender; set aside. Melt 1 tablespoon margarine in a medium nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell peppers, and garlic; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Combine the onion mixture, steamed cauliflower, 1 tablespoon margarine, water, salt, and white pepper in food processor; process until smooth, scraping sides of processor bowl occasionally.
