Mashed Cauliflower

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 entrĂ©e.  The best part is it only takes about 10 minutes to whip it up and serve.
Mashed cauliflower is a wonderful healthy vegetable. It's low in fat, high in folate and vitamin C.

Serve mashed cauliflower alone or with some beef gravy on top, which is how we like to serve it.  Just a another great trick to get the kids to eating mashed cauliflower, right?    It's how I got my kids to try it. They love it ever since!

Mashed Cauliflower

  • 1 medium cauliflower- cord, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ounce water, if needed
  • salt & fresh ground pepper
  • finely chopped parsley for garnish
  • optional: beef gravy, heated

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.
Add olive oil and parsley and mix into a smooth texture.
Season with salt and pepper.
Garnish with some fresh parsley.

Transfer to a serving bowl and serve.
Optional: serve with heated gravy on the side.
