Dairy-free Mashed Cauliflower Recipe
1 head of cauliflower
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. margarine (I use Earth Balance soy-free)
a few sprigs of fresh herb of choice (dill or parsley are nice)
1-2 tbsp. nutritional yeast (optional)
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
Cut off generous florets off the main cauliflower stalk. Bring water to a boil in steamer and add your florets. If you want, you can add a sprig or two of your fresh herb, reserving some for later. Steam for 8-10 minutes or until you can easily pierce with a fork. Remove herb and discard. Remove florets from steamer and put in your food processor. Process lightly. Add your olive oil, margarine, and fresh herb and process until creamy. Add nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper, and process again to disperse. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
Baby Yum style: For an allergy-prone 14 month old who has already successfully eaten cauliflower, fresh herbs and olive oil:
I left out the margarine and salt.
