Default Fat Melanie's Cheesy Garlicky Super-Indulgent SBD "Mashed Potatoes"

1 head of cauliflower, trim of the unnecessary crap
1 small onion, chopped into tiny pieces
2 tablespoons smart balance margarine
2 teaspoons chopped garlic (you don't necessarily have to buy a clove and chop it, just get the chopped garlic in water from the store!)
1 1/2 cups of reduced fat cheddar, and a bit more for sprinkling
8 oz sourcream
more smart balance to taste
garlic powder
onion powder
salt
pepper

Fill a pot with water and get it to boiling, put the head of cauliflower in it. Reduce heat somewhat.

While that's cooking, take a little saucepan or frying pan and add the 2 tablespoons smart balance to it. When it melts, add the chopped onion and cook until nearly transcluscent and fragrant. Add in the chopped garlic and cook until the onions are see-through and the garlic is fragrant but not brown.

Check to see that the cauliflower is very tender, and drain the water. Turn off the heat. Add the cauliflower back to the pot, and start mashing with either a big wooden spoon, a potato masher, or even a whisk thingy from a mixer (I didn't use the actually mixer, just the utensil, because I wanted it to be a bit chunky.)

Add the onion and garlic mixture, then the sourcream. Turn the heat on medium and add the cheddar cheese. Then add garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper to taste, some more smart balance margarine to taste, and make sure the cheese is completely melted and you've mixed it thoroughly, then top with some shredded cheddar if desired.
