|Cauliflower is a delicious, healthier version on mashed potatoes.|
Something has been noticeable from this year's winter holiday posts. I forgot to use Gardein gravy packets that came with turk'y cutlets. Thus far, I had collected four packets.What better than mashed potatoes soaking up delicious savory sauce? Except well, frozen cauliflower would be the victorious champion.
Mashed cauliflower has always been a recipe on my radar list. Between homemade cauliflower cream sauces and whatnot, one would imagine that the mashed potato replacement had already been created. But no. It has not. Until now. Here is the quick version. This is intended for when you have gravy on standby. Sans the vegan butters and culinary oils, amount of water is key to a smooth yet whipped consistency. Too much is liquid-y. Too little is cauliflower floret lumps galore. Now you might be shooting for the latter, but for true genuine "ha ha I fooled you" is that perfect balance.
Creamy Mashed Cauliflower Ingredients and Preparation
1 cup frozen cauliflower
2 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
Drain some of the water. Keep about 1/3 cup.
Pour into blender. Add nutritional yeast, salt, and white pepper. Whip.
|Steamed carrots were definitely a plus!|
