Publix Greenwise had organic cauliflower on sale for $1.99 a head, so we bought 5 heads (that's all that would fit in our fridge.) For dinner, my husband suggested mashed cauliflower with pulled bbq chicken and sauteed chard, so that's what I made. The cauliflower came out so good, you could trick someone into thinking the were mashed potatoes! My hubby said I should make the "mashed potatoes" for Christmas dinner at my parents house and see if they could tell the difference. I actually boiled 2 chicken leg quarters and used that broth to boil the cauliflower. I think the fat in the broth is what gave the mashed cauliflower the great taste! Here's the recipe:
1 head organic cauliflower
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Chop up the cauliflower and put it in a pot with the chicken broth. Boil until tender. Drain the cauliflower reserving 1/4 - 1/2 cup of the broth. Using a stick blender, blend together the cauliflower and the broth until it is the consistency of mashed potatoes. Add spices and mix or blend again. If using, store bought broth, you may add butter.
