Mashed cauliflower is a simple dish to make. You'll love how its a nice alternative to serving mashed potatoes. The texture is creamy and delicious, it goes well with any entree' and the best part is it only takes about 10 minutes to whip it up and serve.
Mashed cauliflower is a wonderful healthy vegetable. Its low in fat, high in folate and vitamin C. Serve mashed cauliflower alone or with some beef gravy on top, which is a great way to introduce this dish to kids. It's how I got my kids to try it. They love it ever since!

Rinse, cord and chop cauliflower.
Boil or steam in a pot with 1 inch of water for about 10 minutes, or until tender.
Drain and transfer to a blender or food processor and puree to a smooth texture. I used a hand-held immersion to whip the cauliflower.
