Cauliflower Recipe: Faux Mashed Potatoes
I don’t like cauliflower and my hubby loves it. He can’t quite understand why I have such a despicable relationship with it. The truth is that I don’t like cooked cauliflower, raw is okay. What can I say? I’m a bit odd if you haven’t noticed. You’d think that I’d have the same issue with broccoli but I don’t. Although the truth is that most of the times I eat broccoli raw as well. Anyhow, in my quest to find something yummy to eat I promised myself that I would attempt to have a breakthrough in my relationships with the two vegetables that I didn’t like. I succeeded at making peace with the eggplant so of course, the cauliflower was next.
As I looked and looked for a good recipe, I found a “faux” mashed potatoes recipe made with cauliflower, so heck, I thought I’d give it a try. To my surprise, they ended up tasting just like mashed potatoes without the added starch. The cauliflower has now moved from the “dislike” list to the “love” list… now if I could ONLY have that same breakthrough with the very few people that I don’t like, I’d be golden, on that note, I should clarify that all my readers belong to the “love” list. 🙂
So here is the recipe:
1 head of cauliflower
4 garlic cloves
1/4 can of coconut milk (full fat if you can find it)
salt and pepper to taste
Cut the cauliflower into florets, and steam with the garlic cloves for about 10 minutes. Place in a food processor and add the coconut milk and puree until they are in the consistency of mashed potatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy.
That’s it, simple
