Whole 30, Day 11: A Recipe!
Monday, April 11, 2011
I just made the most delicious mashed cauliflower ever, so I feel the need to share the recipe.
Warning: You will want to eat the entire batch in one sitting.
1 head of cauliflower
1/2 large yellow onion
4 cloves garlic
Coconut Oil (or oil of choice for sauteing)
Coconut Butter (Optional. You may also use regular butter if you wish)
Rosemary (I used dried, but I'm sure fresh is awesome, too!)
1. Break the head of cauliflower into small-ish florets. Place in a steamer basket and steam until very tender. Approximately 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper while the cauliflower steams.
2. Meanwhile, cut the garlic and onion into small pieces. Melt coconut oil (or oil of choice) in a pan over medium heat. Add garlic and onion as well as salt, pepper, and rosemary and saute until onion become clear.
3. Once cauliflower is tender, transfer to a food processor and puree until almost smooth. Then add the garlic/onion mixture, some coconut butter, and some more rosemary, salt, and pepper if desired. Puree until smooth.
**The amounts of salt, pepper, rosemary, and coconut butter are totally up to you. I never measure spices, so I just winged it until is tasted good!
You'll probably get a good 4 servings out of this...unless you attack it with a spoon like I did!
The BF and I have a huge batch of offal stew cooking on the stove right now. If that turns out well, you may be treated to another recipe tomorrow!
