We love mashed potatoes and because we are trying to eat healthy-er, we had to find better ways of satisfying our craving. Presenting... Mashed Cauliflower. Mashed what?
Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable, along with brocolli and cabbage. It is very low in calories and is packed with nutrients and anti-cancer phytochemicals.
1 head of cauliflower, washed
Garlic cloves, chopped
Extra virgin olive oil
Garlic salt powder
Salt and black pepper
1. Cut the cauliflower florettes and place in a steamer with boiling water. Add the chopped garlic and season with salt and pepper. It took about 10 minutes to soften these babies.
4. Once the vegetables are completely mashed, season again. Just sprinkle a little of each condiment.
5. Serve while warm. You can add chopped parsely too. I didn't have it so I just used cilantro for garnishing - it surprisingly tasted good.
I paired this with a small baked seasoned milkfish (bangus). Yum!
It could also be paired with a delicious steak or porkchop... well, we saved on calories and fat anyway, right?
Try it and let me know how it went.
