If you haven’t tried cauliflower mashed potatoes, you are missing out! I received a Vitamix for Christmas from my wonderful husband and this was the first thing I tested out. They tasted amazing and the texture was so creamy and smooth. We had been using the Magic Bullet and it was doable, but the Vitamix made this so much easier.
Instead of using heavy cream or milk, I use coconut milk. This is a great way to get in some healthy fats and still get the creaminess that the dairy typically adds.
1 head of cauliflower, chopped
3 TBSP butter
1/4 cup coconut milk (full fat)
Salt and pepper, to taste
Parley, for garnish
In a large pot that will accommodate a steamer basket, bring 3-4 inches of water to a boil. Place chopped cauliflower in a steamer basket. Once the water is boiling, place the steamer basket in the pot and cover with lid.
Let the cauliflower cook for about 15 minutes or until tender when stuck with a fork. Remove from heat.
In a blender, add the steamed cauliflower, butter, coconut milk, salt, and pepper. Make sure there is an opening in the lid. (There should be a plastic piece that is removable.)
Blend until smooth. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
