I’ve heard about mashed cauliflower for years.
[pinterest]”It tastes just like mashed potatoes.”
“You can’t tell the difference!”
“They’re so good”
Regardless, I never believed these people.
There was no way that this…
could turn into this.
As a mashed potato fanatic, I stand CORRECTED.
I continue to try to find new ways to enjoy vegetables. I don’t really even like cauliflower when it’s cooked, but I have to tell you, I like this.
Now, before I post the recipe I used, I must tell you that there are a LOT of yummy sounding recipes out there. That have a LOT more calories and cheese than I used. Here is the recipe that I based mine on, but it’s not even close to the ooey-gooey goodness described here.
Garlic Mashed Cauliflower
Adapted from Food Network
1 medium head of cauliflower, chopped
2 Tbsp. fat free chicken broth
1 Tbsp. I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray
1 wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese – Garlic and Herb Flavor
2 Garlic Cloves (roasted)
Fresh Ground Pepper
1. Bring a stock pot full of water to a boil. Add cauliflower and cook it for 6 minutes, or until well done.
2. Strain cooked cauliflower. Dry the cauliflower between several paper towels removing as much liquid as possible.
3. Place cauliflower in a food processor and add broth, butter spray, garlic, salt, and pepper. Turn on the food processor and be amazed. It will produce a mashed potato-like consistency. Taste the cauliflower for salt/pepper strength. Add more as needed.
4. Place the “potatoes” in a bowl and sprinkle with chives. Enjoy!
