Creamy Mashed Cauliflower (Vegan, Paleo)

IMG_1463Hello my dears!

I have a super recipe for you guys today. Mashed cauliflower tastes similar to mashed potatoes but with fewer carbs. You can top it with chopped herbs and grated cheese if you like.

So here are the ingredients:

  • 1 medium head cauliflower , trimmed and cut into small florets (about 6 to 7 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil but you can use extra virgin olive oil too
  •  2 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
  •  salt and ground black pepper
Method: 
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Add cauliflower and cook until very tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid and then drain well and transfer cauliflower to a food processor.
  • Add the oil the garlic and the reserved water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and purée until smooth. (Or, mash cauliflower with a potato masher).
  • Season with salt and pepper and serve.
