Family Recipe: Mashed Cauliflower

Mashed cauliflower is a great replacement for mashed potatoes. Serve with Salmon Turtles.

This Recipe Is:
  • 1   head
  • 4   cups
    low-sodium chicken broth
    sea salt and cracked black pepper, to taste
    small pat of butter
  1. Rinse the cauliflower. 
  2. Cut it in 4 pieces and remove any large pieces of stem. 
  3. Put cauliflower in a medium pot with broth. Add a pinch of salt. If broth does not cover cauliflower, add water until it is covered.
  4. Boil about 10 to 15 minutes until cauliflower is tender. 
  5. Spoon out cauliflower into a blender. Add a couple large spoons of broth to blender. Cover blender with lid. Blend on high until creamy. You may have to add more broth, a spoon at a time (do not add too much), until cauliflower blends. 

Add a small pat of butter and pepper to serving bowls.
