Mashed Cauliflower

What you need: 

1 head cauliflower, chopped to florets
2 tablespoons margarine
vegan cheese, to taste, optional
salt and pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. Immerse the chopped cauliflower into salted boiling water and cook until soft, up to 20 minutes. This time will vary depending on how small the pieces are, so check them every few minutes.
2. Drain and transfer into bowl. Add margarine and soy cheese, if desired. Mash with fork until the florets are broken down and mashed.
3. In addition to salt and pepper, you may add any other seasonings that will complement your tastes and the meal these accompany.
Ideally this will be a substitute for mashed potatoes. Enjoy!

Preparation Time: 
around 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 
Servings: 
2-4

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Absolutely delicious!  I used half the amount of margarine and used  nutritional yeast because I forgot to take soy cheese out of the freezer.  I used the food processor like some other people had tried, the texture comes out beautifully smooth.  I honestly think I like this better than mashed potatoes!

I didn't have any soy cheese (never found one I like in fact), but I tried it with nutritional yeast. Super good!

This was really good. It was a little soggy because we didn't drain it well enough and it would have been better with soy cheese which we didn't have. C said it was perfect: "in between grits and mashed potatoes" :P
We added some paprika to the mix too.

Amazing!  I can't believe I haven't made this before now.  I mean, my mom made it for me once back when we were doing some low carb thing and I didn't care for it - I think it was a texture thing....but I must say, I'm a little obsessed with this right now - I'll probably be making it constantly.  I steamed the cauliflower for about 10 minutes and mashed it with EB, a little FYH Mozzarella, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Next time I'll try whipping it in the food processor so its a little creamier - mine was a little chunky, but I was just mashing with a fork.

Absolutely fantastic!! I will be making this very often, beautiful flavor and really lite. You can even cut down on the eb if you wanted. Thanks for a great recipe

I use a food processor for a really smooth, whipped texture. I add 1/4 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp salt (but I steam the cualiflower, not boil in salted water). My hubby and my dad are huge potato addicts and they absolutely love this. If only cauliflower were as cheap as potatoes!
