Picture of Cauliflower Mash

So you have a potluck to go to but you don't have a lot of time or you just don't know how to cook but you really want to impress your friends or special person of interest. Well, this is a super easy but super delicious recipe.

It's a great alternative to the heavy starch in potatoes.

Another good thing about this recipe is you can make it vegan and it is just as good as if it had butter and cream in it.

Ingredients-

-head of cauliflower, chopped into florets

-3 Tablespoons of coconut oil or butter

-1/4 cup coconut milk or dairy free milk (optional for thinner mash)

-salt and pepper to taste

I am showing you a simple and delicious base but you can add chilli flakes, garlic, basil or anything else you like to spice it up.

Equipment-

-steamer

-food processor or potato masher

Step 1: Steam

Put the cauliflower florets into a steamer with water just below the steamer level and bring to a boil.

When boiling, lower the heat to a heavy simmer for about 20 minutes or until you can easily stick a fork in the stem.

When desired tenderness is reached, drain and set aside.

Yum

add a little garlic salt for a bang

To make it 'go further' we add swede, diced and steamed along with cauliflower, then continue as your 'ible. Still low in carbs but we find the swede adds a nice 'edge' to the cauliflower which can be a little bland. More people should try these variations rather than just plain potatoe mash. p.s. this is great when making a fish pie.

Languages are funny.

I wonder how we Americans ended up with "rutabaga", while across the pond its "swede"! Usually there is some connection, but these aren't even close!

I like to substitute plain yogurt for the oil/butter. Add a touch of dill, or garlic. I like to put a clove of garlic right in the steamer with the cauliflower.
