Creamed Garlic Cauliflower
Here is a recipe that you will really enjoy, especially if you are a mashed potato lover. Todd and I have reduced the amount of carbohydrates that we consume, we have been trying to eliminate refined carbohydrates and lower the amount of starchy carbohydrates. As a result we have both lost over 20 pounds since March.
We do not however avoid vegetables, and one of the vegetable we have been loving to prepare is cauliflower. This cauliflower recipe is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1 head of fresh cauliflower (I could probably use frozen as well).
2 Tablespoons butter (use the real stuff, not margarine).
1/4 cup of cream
1 clove of garlic
salt & pepper to taste
#1. Cut up and boil your cauliflower until tender, this will take about 10 minutes or so. Then drain.
#2. Place the cooked cauliflower, butter, cream, clove of garlic and salt & pepper into the food processor and blend until creamy. You can also mash it with a fork, I have done this before; you have to put the garlic through a garlic press and it won't be creamy but it is still good.
#3. Serve, we had our cauliflower along with a tossed salad with goat cheese, and grilled chicken sausages from Trader Joe's (the pesto chicken sausage [top one in the picture] was a little salty to me but good, the roasted tomato and peppers were just too spicy to eat, but Todd and Cort (the oldest son) thought they were both great.
