How to Mash Cauliflower
Cut the cauliflower into the florets - and place them in a large pot. I used 3 cauliflowers tonight - I wouldn't normally make this many - but I need to eat a bunch of veggies before the weekend. Fill the pot about 1/3 of the way up with water. Boil on medium to high heat, with the lid on, for about 15 minutes - or until tender with a fork.
Drain the cauliflower and place it back into the pot. Season with kosher salt and fresh black pepper. Then mash the cauliflower as you would like mashing potatoes.
Add fresh chopped chives. I like to use a pair of kitchen scissors to cut them in. Add 2 tbsp of butter and a 1/2 cup parmesan cheese. Sorry for the pic - I need a 3rd hand at times.
Stir it all in thoroughly - and serve it up.
And that's it! It so easy, super delicious and a healthy alternative for a side dish.
That's it for me tonight - dining and dashing.
I hope that your Monday was kind to you.
