Somebody stop me!
Really I need help...
Whatever possesses me to try new recipes with toddlers pulling at my apron strings, I have no idea! Crying toddlers, faulty kitchen equipment and me do not mix. Warning, do not try this at home!
My attempt at this recipe was unsuccessful. The Hamilton Beach food processor & the plan B Hamilton Beach Blender did not perform well in producing the promised luxurious creaminess. I do not blame the recipe, after all the pictures looked like "creamy mashed potatoes" sans the starch! I was ready for paleo bliss, what one commenter described as gastronomical heaven!
Recipe from www.primal-palate.com
1 head of cauliflower
1 tablespoon of grass fed butter or coconut oil (both optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped chives (optional)
Rinse cauliflower under cool water.
Trim florets from the base of the cauliflower.
Place a steamer basket in a large soup pot and fill the bottom of the pot with water.
Place cauliflower florets into the steamer basket, cover with a lid and turn burner onto medium heat.
Steam cauliflower until fork tender. About 10-15 minutes.
Place steamed cauliflower into a food processor or high speed blender.
Season generously with salt and pepper.
Add a tablespoon of butter or coconut oil if desired.
Puree until smooth, and serve.
Optional garnish is to top with chopped chives."
Was it the toddlers? Was it my equipment? Was it my attitude? Something went seriously wrong...mine turned out lumpy, bumpy and cold. One good thing, I modified the recipe to include curry--I can say yum to that.
Do you have a success story for your Paleo Cauliflower Mash? I'd like to hear it! Help is needed!
