I am sure many of you have heard of this idea or already serve cauliflower this way. I have never tried doing this, not a big cooked cauliflower fan, more of a broccoli girl. All I can say...why did I wait so long to do this!!! It really does remind me of mashed potatoes. I haven't had white potatoes in a very long time, so someone that lives on them may disagree with me! This is a great starch free side dish to enjoy with out the guilt!
If you are someone that is skipping over this recipe because this is old news to you, just wait, I have a unique one coming that uses this as a base!!
Recipe: Mashed Cauliflower
- 1 head of cauliflower, steamed
- 2 tbsp grass-fed butter
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 tbsp chives, chopped
- 1/4-1/2 cup plain dairy free milk, unsweetened (optional)
- salt and pepper
- Place the steamed cauliflower, butter, garlic, milk and salt and pepper in a Vitamix or high speed blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour into a bowl and stir in the chives and additional salt and pepper if needed.
There are many variations to this recipe. Crumbled bacon would be good on top and you can also substitute the chives for green onion if you prefer.
