I’m very glad I found this recipe. This is already the best dish of January for me, and maybe for 2011; we’ll see… But eating is believing. Or disbelieving. We could NOT believe that this was not mashed potatoes. So good. And good for you. Very creamy, buttery, and moist. No carbs! You can eat these without guilt. And they’re filling, too.
Cauliflower mashed potatoes (from Pride and Vegudice blog)
2 medium heads of cauliflower, washed and chopped into florets
1-2 tablespoons melted coconut oil (I used canola oil)
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
fresh black pepper to taste
herbs of your choice, to taste (I didn’t use any, but next time may try rosemary or thyme)
Steam the cauliflower florets until very very tender. Puree cauliflower in a food processor until smooth, occasionally scraping down the sides. Add the oil, nutritional yeast, sea salt, pepper, and optional herbs. Continue pureeing until desired consistency is achieved (a couple of minutes). Add any additional salt and pepper to taste.
