Cauliflower Mash

I admit, this recipe is ripped off from probably dozens of places, but I got this version from a South Beach cookbook.  (FYI, I do not recommend the SB diet, but there are some tasty, healthy recipes in the cookbooks that I do recommend– as long as you maintain a varied diet that includes whole grains and fruits.) 

I don’t find this an equal substitute for mashed potatoes, but the cauliflower version is equally delicious in its own right.  Even if you don’t like cauliflower, I can just about guarantee you’ll enjoy this dish!  For an added flavor boost, toss in some freshly grated nutmeg (for a sweetly mild boost) or curry powder (for something a little more complex).

Prep and cook time: 10 minutes. Cost: about $0.50 per serving.

Cauliflower Mash

  • 4 cups cauliflower
  • 1 to 2 T. butter
  • Splash of milk
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Steam cauliflower for about 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Puree in food processor with milk and butter. Season with salt and pepper.

Serves 4
