Mashed Cauliflower

Serves 4 to 6



1 head cauliflower, cleaned, and chopped into small florets
Vegetable or chicken stock (low-sodium)
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt or low-fat sour cream
1-2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon horseradish
Salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, to taste



Add cauliflower florets and garlic to medium sized saucepan. Add enough stock to just cover the florets (about ½ cup). Steam cauliflower until firm, not mushy, about 10 minutes.


Add cauliflower, garlic and stock to a food processor and blend until smooth, about 1 minute. Add yogurt, cheese, and horseradish. Add salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to taste. Blend again for about 1 minute.


Serve as a side dish or top with grilled poultry, fish or meat.
