Cauliflower Puree

This is a great way to serve cauliflower as a side dish.  When I couldn't eat potatoes I would make this cauliflower puree.  I like it better than mashed potatoes and still make it all the time.  The great thing is my kids just love it!  It is so easy!  Cauliflower is packed with nutrients.  It is low in fat, high in fiber and an excellent source of vitamins C and K.  It also contains many cancer fighting phyto-nutrients.

1 head organic cauliflower
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2-3 Tablespoons butter
salt to taste

Fill a saucepan with an inch of water.
Add cauliflower and steam over medium low heat until tender, about 45 minutes.

Drain water from pan.
Add yogurt and butter.

Puree with a hand blender until light and fluffy.
Season with salt to taste.
