Who doesn’t love a nice pile of mashed potatoes? They are definitely a comfort food for me. Slip some cauliflower into yours to sneak in tons of vitamins, minerals and anti-cancer phyto-chemicals!
I find that cauliflower can go bad quickly, so if I have it in the house and I can’t use it in time (or can’t use all of it), I chop it, steam half a head for about 5 minutes and then cool, put in a ziploc and freeze it for later use in this recipe. It gets mashed up anyway, so it doesn’t matter that it kinda falls apart upon thawing.
- 1 1/2 lbs potatoes of your choice, skins on!
- 1/2 head cauliflower
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- black pepper, to taste
- 2 Tbsp veggie broth or water, if needed
Roughly chop the potatoes. Boil in water until tender, adding the cauliflower for the last 10 – 15 minutes (less if it is pre-steamed as described above). Once cauliflower is soft, drain, add the remaining ingredients and mash well. Add veggie stock or water as needed for consistency.
