I’m going to be honest and say that this Paleo diet takes some getting used too!
I’ve never been a big fan of cauliflower, ever. I love mashed potatoes!
However, when my doctor said that I really need to eat cauliflower, my stomach churned, yuck! ;p
Hesitantly, I looked up cauliflower recipes and found this one.
Now, I have a pressure cooker, but not one of the steamer baskets to go in it, so I just cut up the cauliflower (which isn’t all that easy the first time) and put it in a big pot of water (just like I do when I make mashed potatoes). When it was done cooking, I drained it and put it in our smoothie maker blender . This worked, but not very well. It was a little soupy, but I bet that’s because of the way I cooked the cauliflower and because I didn’t think until now to look in the International section of the grocery store for canned coconut milk, so I just used Silk Coconut Milk.
Now I wasn’t home when he had this for dinner, but I did manage to eat before I left and before the others sat down to eat. (I didn’t tell them what it was, so they called it “mush” and the name has stuck! 😉
And much to my amazement, this stuff is GOOD! I like it BETTER than mashed potatoes! (The texture is a little weird!)
Here is my two year old son’s reaction (disclaimer: getting this kid to eat any vegetable is a chore and almost impossible!)
My husband said that he just couldn’t get enough of the mush! He even went around and cleaned his siblings plates of their left over mush!
