Pureed Cauliflower

After the overload of the holiday season, it's the time of year for eating simple, healthy food to recover, and resolving to make it a permanent change in life. From the websites I have visited in the past couple of days, I am not alone in this thought. Lots of people are focusing on low fat, low carb, more foods in their pure forms. All very wonderful plans for January and onward.
This is such a simple and ingenious idea. A great substitution for mashed potatos, still great tasting, but much lower in fat and calories.

I got this recipe from a friend who is dieting. This is a recommended dish for her.

Pureed Cauliflower
Break 1 head of cauliflower into small florets. Steam or boil until tender.
Puree in a food processor with salt, pepper, and a couple of glugs of olive oil.
Serve as a side dish, instead of potatos.

Great idea - I love the nutty taste of cauliflower.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I like this dish quite a bit. I have also made it with a bit of cream cheese instead of the olive oil.
