Mashed cauliflower is something that I make about once a week. I like to make it instead of mashed potatoes, not that it tastes like mashed potatoes but the consistency is similar. Cauliflower is low in fat and high in fibre. I used to make this just with cauliflower but since reading The Four Hour Body by Tim Ferriss, I have started adding white kidney beans to it, which adds protein and fibre.
1 head cauliflower, cut into small florets
1 cup white kidney beans (canned or rehydrated dried beans)
1/2 cup vegan cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon vegan margarine
Salt and pepper to taste
Steam the cauliflower until fork tender. Add the kidney beans to the cauliflower and continue to cook for another minute or two. Remove from the heat.
Place the cauliflower and beans in a food processor or pot (if using an immersion blender). Add the margarine, cheese and salt and pepper. Mash the cauliflower with an immersion blender or blend in food processor until smooth and creamy. Serve and enjoy.
