So I had this HUGE beautiful cauliflower head growing in the garden and wanted to do something fun with it.  So after a bit of digging I found some recipes for mashed cauliflower.  Its a lo-carb, but high fat (lots of cheeses) version of mashed potatoes and is oh so delicious.

The recipe is very easy.  You basically steam some cauliflower, throw it in a food process or blender with some cheeses and poof.   You have a creamy, cheesy, awesome mashed cauliflower dish that is sure to please.   Here’s how I did it.

chop up and wash your cauliflower.  Steam it for about 15 – 20 minutes in a steamer.  You can also boil it if you want.

then throw it in the food processor

Then 2 tablespoons of cream cheese.  And yes I did take this picture upside down.  That’s how I roll.

And finally finished it off with the last hunk of brie I had laying around.

Process all that good stuff together and voila.  You end up with a wonderful creamy and tasty dish.

Try this out next time your looking to do something different instead of just steaming cauliflower.
