Mashed Cauliflower
  • 1 medium head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into small florets (about 6 to 7 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 teaspoons non sweetened coconut milk (optional)
  • Himalayan salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  1. In a large pot, bring water and salt to a boil.
  2. Add cauliflower and cook until very tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid and then drain well and transfer cauliflower to a food processor.
  4. You want to use the liquid you boiled the cauliflower in because it is full of nutrients so don’t throw it away.
  5. Add the extra virgin olive oil and reserved water (and coconut milk), 1 tablespoon at a time, and purée until smooth. (Or, mash cauliflower with a potato masher).
  6. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
