I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Mine was very lovely, so nice to spend time with my new family. I thought I would post some of the recipes I made. I am going to break it into four posts to make it easier.
Here is the recipe for mashed cauliflower. It has a lot less carbs than potatoes. Now, I am not going to lie...I did not have high expectations. Mashed Potatoes is one of my favorite foods and I thought nothing could replace it. But this was fantastic! It is just as good, if not better. And it was so easy.
1 medium head of cauliflower
1/4 cup vegetable broth
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Wash the cauliflower head and dry.
Remove the florets from the base stem.
Fill a large pot with water and add the florets.
Place the pot on the stove over high heat on the stove. Cover and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, uncover and add a bit of salt. Cook until the cauliflower is tender.
Drain well and return to the pot.
Add the remaining ingredients and mash everything together well. Try to get the cauliflower as smooth as you can.
Now your mashed cauliflower is ready to serve! I topped mine with vegan gravy but any traditional mashed potato toppings would work great too.
