I did it.
I tried a new veggie.
Have you heard of it? It's called CAULIFLOWER. Apparently it's new.
oh...wait...what? It's not?
Well I have never had it. It scares me. So I decided to make them into faux mashed taters...and let me tell you.
It was so good. I swear.
Here is what I did.
I bought a head of cauliflower (this made enough for me and Heather). I broke it up and cut the nubits (that's the technical term) and boiled the nubits in milk and water. Some recipes just call for water, some call for milk, so I did both.
I boiled for about 20 minutes. This may have been a little too long, but you can tell when they are tender enough for you.
Now, after I boiled the little nubs, I drained off the water and put the cauliflower in my food processor with some salt, pepper, butter, and a little bit of sour cream. Then, you just turn your food processor on and let it go. Because mine were so tender, it probably only took 30 seconds.
They were a little smoother than thick mashed potatoes. But they were sooo sooo good. I could have eaten the entire bowl myself.
Do try and let me know what you think.
Tonight I am baking tilapia.
And as a reminder, I no likey fish. Probably has something to do with the fact that I am a mermaid and it's like eating my brothern, or sistern...
But I am opening my mind. I am baking it in the oven, Parmesan crusted. May God be with me. Or someone...someone who likes fish.
I am from Kansas afterall. We eat cows.
