Let’s Talk Cauliflower:
Cauliflower is high in fiber, Vitamin C, folate and contains many phtyochemicals common in plants that are members the cabbage family. Cauliflower is also high in sulforaphane, a nutrient known to have anti-cancer benefits. All this and almost no carbs so you can indulge in this decadent side dish with absolutely no guilt!
What are the three ingredients?
Cauliflower, butter (or clarified butter or ghee for my Whole 30 friends) and sea salt! If you wish you can freshly ground pepper and garnish with parsley.
I frequently use cauliflower purée as a side dish because it goes well with just about any protein main course as well as salads. My latest obsession is making a maple version topped with roasted lemon chicken breasts! Of course it makes the perfect mash potato substitute, and is pretty enough to make even for the holidays!
The Recipe: Three Ingredient Cauliflower Purée
A simple delicious puréed cauliflower. Paleo with a Whole 30 option!
- 6 cups cauliflower leaves and core removed, cut into small florets
- 1/2 stick 1/4 cup butter or ghee, room temp
- Sea salt and/or freshly ground pepper to taste
- Parsley for garnish if desired
Place two inches of water in vegetable steamer. Place cauliflower in steamer.
Turn flame to high heat
Steam cauliflower till a fork goes in easily, usually 10-12 minutes
Carefully place cauliflower into food processor, add a generous pinch or two of sea salt, butter, clarified butter or ghee. Process till smooth, scraping down sides of processor if needed. That's it! If using a potato masher place ingredients into a large bowl and mash until smooth.
