Tonight’s recipe is Mashed Cauli. I first had this at Houlihan’s and although skeptical of it, I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted it. It really simulated mashed potatoes but to me was somehow better. I vowed to try to make this at home. I mean could it be that hard? I’m sure theirs was loaded with extra calories and fat which added to the tastiness but I decided to make the healthiest version of it that I can think of without giving up taste.
- 1 head of fresh cauliflower
- freshly ground black pepper
- uncured turkey bacon cooked and crumbled (about 3-4 slices)
Steam your caulifower florets until soft and when you put a fork through them they fall apart. Empty the water and put cauli in pot. Mash with a hand masher. Sprinkle in the bacon and black pepper. Stir and serve! You can also use the soft jarred bacon bits if you prefer (2-3 tablespoons).
