I’ve been meaning to post this recipe for quite awhile. I make this side dish at least a few times a month as it is a dish everyone in my family will eat and come back for seconds…or thirds. And that’s not an easy feat for a Mom when the main ingredient is cauliflower.
Whether you avoid nightshades (and thus potatoes) or just want to try a new way to enjoy cauliflower, this cheesy dish is for you.
More reasons to eat up: Cauliflower is a good source of Vitamin C, folate, fiber and manganese. There are many delicious ways to eat cauliflower, but this dish is one of my favorite ways to gobble the vegetable up.
1 large cauliflower
2 Tbsp. ghee (or butter)
2 Tbsp. unsweetened or homemade almond milk (or milk of choice)
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese (dairy-free option: Daiya Cheese)
1 tsp. Herbamare
1 tsp. garlic powder
pepper to taste
Break cauliflower into florets and place pieces in a medium size pan with 3 cups water. Boil until the florets are tender and then drain water in a colander. Pour cauliflower into a large bowl and mash with a potato masher. Add in ghee, milk, cheese, garlic powder, Herbamare and pepper. Beat with an electric mixer for 3 minutes or until texture is smooth and creamy. Serve hot.
Optional-Top with cheese and pepper.
Makes 4 servings.
