Thanksgiving is here.

For so many busy, working families, this time of year is the only opportunity for relatives to gather in one place, relax and give thanks for the blessings of the past year and for those yet to come.

Here's a healthy alternative to serve on the holiday:

Cauliflower Mashed 'Potatoes'

Ingredients
    1 head cauliflower
    1 clove garlic
    1 leek, white only, split in 4 pieces
    1 tablespoon soft-tub margarine, nonhydrogenated
    Pepper to tasteDirections: Break cauliflower into small pieces. In a good-sized saucepan, steam cauliflower, garlic and leeks in water until completely tender, about 20 to 30 minutes. While cauliflower is hot, puree until the vegetables resemble mashed potatoes. (Use a food processor, of if you prefer a smoother texture, use a blender. Process only a small portion at a time, holding the blender lid on firmly with a tea towel.) Add a little hot water if vegetables seem dry. Stir in margarine and pepper to taste.
