About 2 1/2 weeks ago, I had a tonsillectomy. Not the most fun thing to do over Christmas break, but it needed done. I was pretty much limited to eating mush for a solid 2 weeks. I ate lots of pudding, jello, yogurt, ice cream, smoothies, and popsicles. I was getting sick of all the sweet food though. I did some mashed potatoes, but they have just never been my favorite. For the longest time I have wanted to make mashed cauliflower and now I had the perfect reason!
I am just about back to normal eating, but I am still eating the mashed cauliflower almost daily! There are a lot of different ways you can spice it up. It doesn't get much healthier or low cal than cauliflower.
All you really need to make it is
- Cauliflower (raw or frozen)
- A knife
- A way to steam it (steamer, pot of water, steamer bag it comes in)
- A blender or food processor
|I prefer using raw, but the frozen steamer bags are easier|
|Cut it all up into small pieces, rinse, and place in steamer|
|I microwaved for about 14 minutes. This was for the whole head of cauliflower.|
|Ninja!! Love this thing! I think it's easier to use the single|
serve cup and blade.
|I also love it with a little fat free gravy.|
|Add some fat free sour cream and some ranch powder mix.|
|Sprinkle on some of your favorite cheese.|
I am a vegetarian but I am sure it would be great with some bacon bits, sour cream, cheese, and chives. Loaded baked cauliflower! I will have to test that out on my husband, the carnivore!
