Let me start by saying: I do not like cauliflower. Here is a conversation from our house yesterday:
Me: What do you want with the meatloaf tonight?
Hubby: mmmmm. I don't care.
Me: I was thinking baked potatoes..?
Hubby gives me a discerning look. And then says: Cauliflower?
And then I decide to make myself a baked potato and him cauliflower. But then I forgot to grab a potato from downstairs and I didn't feel like walking back downstairs. So, cauliflower it was! And boy, oh boy, it turned out fab.u.lous! I've made mashed cauliflower before and I wasn't impressed. However, I went with the clean-out-the-fridge route and mixed in a little Parmesan and cream cheese when I mashed it. Swooooooon! All that was left was one big spoonful . . .so I know it well received :)
1 lb Frozen Cauliflower
1 TB Cream Cheese
1 TB Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Garlic
1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
Step 1: Cook the cauliflower per the instructions on the container. I microwaved mine. Drain well.
Step 2: In a food processor, add the cauliflower + the remaining ingredients. Pulse until smooth. Taste, adjust salt and pepper as needed. Serve immediately. Nobody likes cold cauliflower puree.
