This is my favorite recipe for cauliflower mashed potatoes. The first time I made it, i actually fooled my cauliflower-hating husband and son. The key is to make sure the CF is completely drained. I put it on paper towels and then blot it good to absorb the moisture.
Made to recipe, allowed the veg to drain thoroughly. Served with CL's meat loaf/provolone. Nice change from potatoes. If we do again, will try with daneanp's garlic add-on.
I was skeptical but we were pleasantly surprised by this dish. We made it to go along side the Cremini Mushroom Meatloaf as shown and the combination was wonderful - comfort food without the guilt! Will definitely make this side dish over and over. I did add a couple of cloves of garlic to the pot while the cauliflower and potato cooked. Some chopped chives would be nice on the top too.
I made this with my 11 year-old son, who was initially grossed out by the idea of cauliflower. However, we made it and he LOVED this recipe. So did my 7 year-old who had no idea that it has cauliflower in it. I used an old-school potato masher instead of a food processor.
I must admit that cauliflower is not our favorite veggie, but we were VERY pleasantly surprised by how much we liked this! The consistency was a little thinner than I prefer for my mashed potatoes, but I would definitely make this again. Served as a side dish to CL's Orange-Mustard Glazed Pork Chops.
