I saw this recipe for Mashed Cauliflower on Elana's Pantry. I love mashed potatoes, but sometimes they can be a bit heavy. For the pre-Thanksgiving meal we had tonight, I wanted to try something a bit lighter. This recipe is a nice substitute. It has a great flavor, is really easy to make, is much healthier than mashed potatoes, and is still a good vehicle to hold gravy.
1 large head of cauliflower
2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper to taste
1. Steam the cauliflower until very tender
2. Put the cauliflower, butter, salt and pepper in a large bowl and mash (or puree)
3. Top with some more butter and parsley if you'd like
That's it. Enjoy!
