|1 head cauliflower, cut into florets of roughly the same size||1/2 teaspoon garlic powder|
|3/4 cups broth, chicken, less sodium, low-fat||1/4 teaspoon onion powder|
|1 tablespoon cornstarch||1/4 teaspoon paprika|
|4 ounces cream cheese, fat-free||Kosher salt|
|2 tablespoons cheese, Romano, or Parmesan cheese, grated||Black ground pepper|
Steam the cauliflower over boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender. Drain. Place the cauliflower in a food processor or blender along with 1⁄2 cup broth. Puree on high until smooth. Transfer the puree to a medium saucepan.
In a cup, dissolve the cornstarch in the remaining 1⁄4 cup broth, and add to the cauliflower puree. Add the cream cheese, Romano or Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. Cook over medium heat, stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, until the puree begins to thicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
