Cauliflower Mash


This is a very simple recipe, for those trying to shed some pounds it can be a great replacement for mashed potatoes.  I have to be honest, it still tastes like cauliflower but the flavor is milder, the texture is velvety and it is much lighter too.

So, here I have two versions for this recipe.  One regular one and a Paleo friendly one.  You pick whichever you desire being both of them really tasty.


Regular Cauliflower Mash:

Ingredients:

1 cauliflower head, cut into florets
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
2 Tbsp. heavy whip cream


Directions:

In a large pot bring water to boil.  Add some salt and pour in cauliflower florets.  Cook until soft for about 7-10 minutes.  It will depend on the size of your cauliflower.

Once cooked, drain and transfer to a food processor, season with salt and freshly ground pepper.  Add the butter and heavy whip cream and process until smooth.

Serve and enjoy!


PALEO Friendly Cauliflower Mash:

Ingredients:

1 cauliflower head, cut into florets
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 Tbsp. unsalted organic butter (from grass fed cow) or Ghee
2 Tbsp. coconut milk


Directions:

In a large pot bring water to boil.  Add some salt and pour in cauliflower florets.  Cook until soft for about 7-10 minutes.  It will depend on the size of your cauliflower.

Once cooked, drain and transfer to a food processor, season with salt and freshly ground pepper.  Add the butter or ghee and coconut milk and process until smooth.

Serve and enjoy!
