It's cold and rainy and snowy (!) like much of the East Coast here, which calls for some warming comfort food. For this, I turned to Nora from Pride and Vegudice (awesome blog name by the way) and her somewhat healthier than conventional comfort food: Mashed Cauliflower.
This is a low-carb option to mashed potatoes. Now, I'm Irish and grew up loving mashed potatoes or, really, potatoes in any form. And this mashed cauliflower was delicious. I do love cauliflower anyway, but have never prepared it like this. It got super creamy in my food processor and was especially great with the addition of fresh chopped rosemary.
I tried Nora's puree-and-then-bake, method, hoping to get a slightly crispy golden-brown top on mine, but it didn't happen. Nevertheless, tasty.
I served it alongside a salad and some of those seitan-beer sausages from the other day, which actually improved having sat in the refrigerator for a while. Not as oddly expansive, and chewier. The only thing that could have made the meal homier is Isa's punk rock chickpea gravy. I did do Isa the homage of listening to the Ramones while making the mashed cauliflower, though. I think she would approve.
