Stuff and Nonsense: Not Mashed Potatoes

Not Mashed Potatoes

I made mashed cauliflower for the first time! I know, I know, 2004 called and wants its food trends back.


I basically overcooked a bag of frozen steam-in-bag cauliflower so they were super soft and squishy. Then I dumped them into my food processor with heavy cream and melted butter and processed everything until it looked mashed potato like. Seasoned the mash to taste with sea salt, black pepper, and garlic powder and served it topped with broth-based chicken gravy.

Were they as good as my usual buttery garlic mashed potatoes? Of course not. Did I regret making and eating them? No, definitely not. They certainly helped banish my cauliflower cravings (seriously, I had cravings lately for big bowls of cauliflower and broccoli) and were a decent stand-in for the potatoes I forgot to buy.
