What’s in it?
1 head of cauliflower
1/2 a large onion, chopped or sliced [use a little extra if you love onions!]
3-4 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp plain greek yogurt
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/2-1 tsp extra virgin olive oil [or your favorite oil!]
freshly ground black pepper, to taste [I used lots]
dried parsley [again... looooots!]
chopped green onions + any extra S+P you’d like to toss in to the mix
Round off the meal with some grated sharp cheddar and and some steamy delicious kale
Vegansaurus Chefs use almond/coconut milk instead of greek yogurt + skip ze cheese
So by now you should toss your cauliflower into a pot, adjust heat to medium, and add a few cranks of freshly ground black pepper and 1/2 tsp salt. If you haven’t started mashing yet, go for it! Then add a few cloves of garlic and your gorgeously caramelized onions and stir to incorporate. Next give it a taste! Adjust seasonings as needed. I always add a little extra salt + pepper and a generous sprinkle of parsley. Garnish with chopped chives or dried parsley + paprika and serve steaming hot.
So… How was it?
I really really reeeeeallly love it with a little grated cheddar and served a top a bed of silky, fluffy, sauteed kale. It channels a loaded baked potato minus all the craziness. Feel free to add a dollop of sour cream or greek yogurt and extra green onions on top. As you can see by the photo, my plate runneth over. It was a comfort foodie kind of day =) Glor. I. Ous. If you love mashed potatoes… or mashed cauliflower… or just plain love food — then I’m certain you’ll love this too!
