Move over mashed potatoes....your services are no longer needed here.
There is literally NO REASON to ever make mashed potatoes again now that CAULIFLOWER SMASH is in town!
The smashed garlic adds such phenomenal flavor that it’s hard to stop eating it. This creamy, delightful dish will certainly be part of my holiday repertoire this year! Yum!
1 head cauliflower florets
3 tablespoons Coconut Oil OR Butter
6 garlic cloves, smashed
3 tablespoons Plain Greek Yogurt
¼ cup parmesan cheese (or 2 Tbsp of nutritional yeast)
sea salt and black pepper
1 Tbsp fresh chives, minced *optional garnish
Place the cauliflower florets in a pot of water and bring to a boil for 10 minutes, until tender. Drain the pot and transfer the cauliflower to a food processor.
Return the pot to medium heat. Add the oil (or butter) and the smashed garlic cloves. Sauté until fragrant, for about a minute.
Transfer the garlic to the food processor along with the remaining ingredients. Blend until a smooth consistency is reached. Garnish with minced chives. Enjoy!
Feel free to use either butter OR coconut oil in this recipe. If you can handle some dairy, the butter DOES take the flavors over the top!
