CauliMash

Via on Jan 11, 2012

It’s the new year and you’re looking for ways to eat your favorite foods in a healthier, lower calorie way. Well, if mashed potatoes are a weakness, you’ll love this veggier, less carbier alternative to your favorite comfort food! Even if you scoff at cauliflower, you’ll never know that this dish isn’t made from a spud!

  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon vegan cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/8 teaspoon vegan chicken bullion (may substitute 1/2 teaspoon salt)
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh or dry chives, for garnish
  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter

Set a stockpot of water to boil over high heat.

Clean and cut cauliflower into small pieces. Cook in boiling water for about 6 minutes, or until well done. Drain well; do not let cool and pat cooked cauliflower very dry between several layers of paper towels.

In a bowl with an immersion blender, or in a food processor, puree the hot cauliflower with the cream cheese, nutritional yeast, garlic, bullion and pepper until almost smooth.

Garnish with chives, and serve hot with pats of butter.

Try roasting the garlic and adding a little fresh rosemary for a whole new taste.
