Do you want your Christmas menu to taste different from your Thanksgiving menu? Try adding a new side dish that doesn’t stray too far from what you know.  This cauliflower mash is a perfect example! It looks like mashed potatoes but is much more sophisticated. With the use of vegan or goat dairy, your guests will be sure to remember this dish for holidays to come.

This is NOT a substitute for mashed potato. It is a fabulous, lux side dish to make, serve and eat on its own merit. Steam, blend, eat. A great everyday recipe to entice the veg-phobes in your life. A perfect Christmas or Thanksgiving accompaniment but quick enough for every day, too. :-)Mashed cauliflower has been around awhile, hasn’t it?

As the vanguard vegetable in the paleo and low-carb movement, cauliflower has transformed, Cinderella-like, from the last thing eaten on the plate (if at all) to being clamoured for – whole, roasted and burnished with spice. The centrepiece of the meal.

I started hearing about cauliflower as a carb sub back in 2011, but kind of ignored it. I just thought “why?” Why ditch mashed potatoes? Just give yourself less…I also thought, how can a whole roasted cauliflower – however herb-bedecked and dripping in tahini sauce – be a main meal, especially if you have growing children? I didn’t get it. I still don’t get it. At least not for these uses.
