The other day, I posted this about one head of cauliflower turning into three dishes. I'm not big with mashed potatoes, I prefer the skin on smashed version better. Potatoes require a lot of butter and cream to give them flavor - something that isn't very practical for a regular week night meal. If I'm going to have that much fat, then just give them to me fried with a lake of ketchup and a beer instead! Pureed cauliflower, however, has a lot more flavor and requires less extras....
pureed roasted cauliflower with lemon.
2 cups roasted cauliflower
drizzle good olive oil
1 tsp butter
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 - 1/3 cup fat free half and half
Combine cauliflower, olive oil, butter, lemon juice in a food processor or immersion blender (my new toy). Add 1/4 cup half and half. Puree and add additional half and half if necessary to make it smooth but not too runny. Scoop into a microwave safe bowl and heat about 2-3 minutes until warm. Add a bit of fresh black pepper on top and serve.
