Cauliflower Mash

15 10 2009

To substitute for mashed potatoes, I’m making a cauliflower mash.  You can’t boil the cauliflower to make the mash or else it gets way too soggy and yuck. 

Here’s what I do:

Cut the head of cauliflower into florets.

Put into a microwave-safe dish with about 3-4 tbs of water. Cover.  Microwave for 3 minutes and stir.  Microwave another 2 minutes.  Check for softness. If not soft, microwave another minute or so.

Mash with a potato masher, or my favorite, the stick blender.

Add salt to taste and some coconut milk for creaminess.
