{Recipe}Cauliflower Mashed Faux-tatoes

Rich, creamy, smooth...I'm talking silky smooth mashed potato like goodness without a potato in sight.
Not that I don't love a mashed potato but sometimes I want something less 'carby'.
My {brilliant} sister gave me this recipe idea.
Steam or microwave one head of cauliflower (cut into florets) or one bag of frozen cauliflower florets until tender.
Now, here's where the creamy comes in.  Add the hot cauliflower florets and 3 wedges of Light Laughing Cow cheese to a blender or food processor. 
 *Be careful with hot things in the blender!*
Mix, mix, mix until smooth. The Vitamix has brought these  faux-tatoes to a whole new level. I used to make them in my food processor and they were delicious but I'd get a few little bits of cauliflower remaining in the finished product. The Vitamix makes them super smooth.
Season with salt & pepper to taste.
Don't feel guilty if you eat the whole batch.
Enjoy piping hot!

I LOVE mashed cauliflower, but have never tried it with the laughing cow cheese... YUM!!

Katie said...

This looks good! Especially with the addition of laughing cow cheese.

I tried something similar once - it was a cauliflower alfredo sauce, but it was more mashed potatoey than alfredo saucey. I'll have to try this, because we love cauliflower!
