I know this is a recipe that has been around the block a million times, but I wanted to show y'all something I make up every week and have on hand. Normally, I have a meal of chicken, rice, and cauliflower ("mashed potatoes") every single day.
You can judge, however, it is delicious. I made this dinner for my mom and stepdad one night, and we didn't tell him that it was cauliflower and he didn't even comment on the difference. After we told him, he said, "I knew something was different" but I don't believe that ;) hehe!
And that night, I also put butter extract in them which I have stopped doing. I know that's common in recipes, but I just always maybe get too much and it comes out tasting funny. So, it's super simple.
First, you just steam the cauliflower.
This normally takes like ten minutes. I just leave the top off and let it boil. When, the cauliflower is soft, then you just drain it and put it in a food processor.
To get the cauliflower to the consistency that you want, you will have to add some water (or unsweetened almond milk is great too). Just put a little water and grind some more. You don't want to put too much unless you like watery mashed potatoes (which I don't think most people do).
Then, you just add salt and you are done. It's as simple as that. You have to add a lot of salt (it's probably like 1/2 tablespoon of both salt and garlic salt. So, disclaimer, if you have incredibly high blood pressure, this might not be the best. However, I am an advocate of not avoiding sodium unless it's necessary for your medical needs so there is no reason that most of my clients should be worried about it.
And then you're done. It's as easy peasy as that.
