Sometimes I serve this as a substitute to mashed potatoes to get in another vegetable serving. Even my two year old eats this.
*2 heads cauliflower, stem removed, chopped into florets*salt to taste
*6 dashes white pepper, divided
*1/4 to 1/3 margarine or more to taste, divided
Preheat oven to warm. Steam 1 head of cauliflower in an electric steamer for 45 minutes. Use the amount of water that your steamer calls for when steaming vegetables. For example, our steamer has two lines, and we fill it up to the shallow line for cauliflower.
Remove cauliflower from steamer and place in a large bowl. Use a potato masher to mash the cauliflower. Add half the margarine, half the white pepper, and salt to taste. Stir well until the margarine is melted. Cover with foil and place in the oven to keep warm.
Prepare the steamer for a second time. Steam the 2nd head of cauliflower in the same way. Remove cauliflower from the steamer and place in another bowl. Add the rest of the margarine, the rest of the white pepper, and salt to taste. Stir well until the margarine is melted.
Combine both mixtures into one bowl. Serve hot.
