This is a very simple cauliflower mash recipe to make, and tastes like mashed potatoes.

 

So if you’re looking for a way to get a different vegetable into your food repertoire, this might be for you!  It’s a popular dish (with a few changes made by me of course) frequently called cauliflower “mashed potatoes” but there are no potatoes in here.

The dish stays well in the refrigerator and re-heats nicely in the microwave.

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower (per 2 people)
  • 1 tablespoon of your choice of butter spread (I used Smart Balance with extra virgin olive oil)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • sea salt

Directions:

  • Wash and cut cauliflower
  • Place cauliflower and garlic in a steamer and salt it lightly
  • Steam until soft
  • Place all in a blender along with the butter spread
  • Blend to desired consistency

Serves: 2

The type of butter or butter spread you use makes a difference here.  In my version above it accounts for half of the calories, all of the calories from fat, and most of the vitamin A.
