Cauliflower Mash with Roasted Chicken and Steamed Broccoli

 

Cauliflower can be cooked alone, as I did  here, or with other white vegetables such as potato, parsnip, or turnip. Cauliflower is a low carb replacement for mashed potatoes. I serve Cauliflower Mash with Cremini Mushroom Meat Loaf and with Coconut Curry (Chicken (seen below) or Fish) and with Roasted Chicken (seen above)

  • Wash an entire head of cauliflower.
  • With a paring knife cut away from the core, using as much of the cauliflower as you can and even the core chopped in smaller pieces.
  • Place the large cauliflower pieces into 1 inch of boiling water and cover.
  • Simmer until tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Drain well and mash.
  • With a stick blender puree, adding 1 tablespoon butter, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 2 Tablespoons heavy cream.

  1. Nina, this cauliflower mash is delicious–really great flavor, different from mashed potatoes. The two of us finished the whole cauliflower head tonight–too good not to take seconds (thirds)… 🙂 This would be an interesting alternative at Thanksgiving for the usual mashed potatoes–thanks! Yum!
