Cauliflower Mash

One of my very dear friends returned to Canada for a visit. It has been three years since I last saw her, and needless to say, we spent lots of time catching up and feasting!

I ended up eating a lot of foods that I could no longer tolerate since adapting some healthier eating habits, but it was still pretty neat to sample all the foods that I used to love to eat since I normally don’t have this opportunity.  As much as I enjoyed these two weeks of feasting, I’m looking forward to introducing cleaner, simpler foods into my diet again!

Those of you who have been following my blog will probably remember that I’m a terrible cook. Normally, my cooking is done by my wonderful boyfriend, who loves to fill my belly with lots of food. However, on days where I don’t get to see him I’m left to do the cooking on my own. When that happens, I tend to choose the simplest recipe possible, because anything that requires too many steps gets me frustrated and I lose interest in cooking altogether. This cauliflower mash recipe is perfect because all that is required is steamed cauliflower, seasoning and kitchen equipment to whip it all together!

The recipe is from my favorite Paleo blog, nomnompaleo. I’ve always found the whole Paleo approach very hard to understand, but it wasn’t until I came across Michelle’s blog that a lot of my confusion was cleared up. I always find her posts entertaining and easy to follow, plus the graphics are always so cheerful, every time I check out her recipes I feel this urge to cook!

My mash turned out a little lumpy, because I couldn’t find my food processor, and had to settle for my ancient blender, but overall, I’m amazed by how much this cauliflower resembled mash potatoes! I am pretty certain if someone put this in front of me without telling me what it is, I would be tricked!

Happy cooking! 🙂
