For whatever he ordered, he had his choice of two sides. He decided to try to mashed cauliflower. I had to try it, and let me tell you, it was GREAT! It made me wish I had ordered it. It was so much more like mashed potatoes than I would have expected. So, like so many other nights, I had to look this recipe up on line and see if I could find it.
- raw cauliflower - a medium head makes about a pound of florettes
- any combination of butter, milk, cream, or whatever you use when you make mashed potatoes - about 1/4 cup
- salt and pepper
- Optional: minced garlic (a clove or two); garlic powder (1/2 to 1 teaspoon); shredded cheese
The easiest thing to do is to add the rest of the ingredients to the container the cauliflower is cooked in, and then use a stick (hand) blender to put it all together. Or you can put it all in a regular blender or food processor.
You can always add any leftovers to homemade broth for a killer veggie soup.
