It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a recipe I know. We spent a lot of time in airports and on the road these past few weeks. We traveled to four states, attended two blogging conferences, and visited with friends and family. One thing about being away from home- we find it difficult to eat like we normally would. We were lucky enough to find a restaurant with a salad bar in Ohio and in Indiana we were able to sneak in a few sides of broccoli at dinner. Otherwise, it’s been a few weeks of gooey cheese enchiladas and pumpkin pie ice cream. As sad as we were to see our travels end, we are excited about returning to a normal routine. For us that means veggies, veggies and more veggies.
On this Meatless Monday I am posting the most simple of all delicious recipes. Mashed cauliflower. Two ingredients. A bag of frozen cauliflower and a can of vegetable broth. Maybe some salt and pepper or dried rosemary for a little extra flavor. I am just so excited to be back home in my own kitchen. But I am starting back at the basics. Mostly just because I had a bag of cauliflower already in my freezer and I didn’t have to make a trip to the grocery store.
What I love about this recipe:
- This was the first thing I made upon returning home. Not only is it easy, frozen cauliflower is a staple in our freezer. After being away from home for so long I was just not interested in battling the crowds at the supermarket.
- Mashed cauliflower has the same texture as mashed potatoes so I definitely do not feel like I am missing out. And mashed cauliflower is a heck of a lot healthier than its potato counterpart, and without all the starchiness.
- I am going to turn them pink. The next time I make mashed cauliflower I am going to add a little beet juice, not only for color, but for some extra flavor as well.
- I think chopping up a little green onion would be delicious as well.
