I love cauliflower puree. I don’t pretend that it tastes just like mashed potatoes. It is its own little wonder. This is super easy to make and a healthy alternative to mashed potatoes. Low fat, low carbs, and high in nutrition. It has a wonderful, creamy cauliflower flavor and the chives give it a nice little burst of flavor.
2 heads cauliflower
3 tablespoons chives, chopped
1/2 cup parmesan, grated
1/4 cup olive oil
1. Fill a large sauce pan with water. Bring it to a boil over high heat.
2. Remove the stalks and leaves from the cauliflower heads, leaving only the florets. Put the florets into the boiling water and boil until very tender, about 15 minutes.
3. Drain the florets and return to the empty pan or a mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer to blend up the cauliflower until smooth.
4. Add in the chives, parmesan, olive oil and mix thoroughly.
When preparing cauliflower, I find it easiest to first chop the head off cauliflower in half. This makes it much easier see all the florets so you can then easily slide your knife around to remove the florets from the stalk and leaves.
