I sometimes miss mashed potatoes.
Let me re-phrase that… I used to miss mashed potatoes.
A few months ago, I discovered the magic of mashed CAULIFLOWER!! Have you ever tried it? It is amazing!
I actually prefer the light creaminess of this recipe to regular mashed potatoes.
Chop cauliflower florets off the base of the vegetable (I use two heads of cauliflower so we’ll have some leftovers).
Place in a steamer over boiling water, and steam until the cauliflower is soft (around 7 minutes).
Drain, and dump florets into a high-powered blender (you can do this with a hand mixer, food processor, etc., but I really believe that the secret to the smooth results I get (see picture above) is my Vita-Mix Blender).
Add about 4 TBS of grass-fed butter per head of cauliflower, a dash of salt, and a dash of pepper.
Blend until smooth.
