Tonight's menu for dinner includes breaded chicken, green beans, and mashed cauliflower. I keep hearing about how good it is, and what a wonderful substitute it is for mashed potatoes. So, I decided a little kitchen experimentation was in order!
What to Do:
Take cauliflower - either a fresh head or the frozen florets, and boil in a pot of water for about 10 minutes or until tender.
Place cauliflower in a food processor, or use a potato masher. I use my Ninja Food Processor. I seriously recommend this appliance. It's easy to use, easy to CLEAN, and it takes so much time out of the process!
Add some garlic powder, salt, pepper, and butter to the mix, along with either milk or cream to achieve desired texture. It won't be exactly like mashed potatoes, but it gets pretty darn close!
