Erm. Mer. Gerd.
I hate cauliflower. Loathe it. Cannot stand it. You get the picture.
I stuffed myself full of this! In fact, I'd say it's safe to bet you could trick people into thinking it's potatoes. Healthy potatoes with less carbs and more vitamins. In fact, it's about 1/3 of the carbs, similar in protein, and even with the yogurt added it's still less than half the calories. However, it's much higher on its own in sodium, so people with blood pressure issues should take that into consideration before adding salt.
It is a little smoother than those package mixes. For those who prefer a thicker mix, I'd add 1/2 a cup more of cauliflower. Also, the garlic is mild, so garlic lovers might want to double it.
2 cups finely chopped cauliflower
3 Tbsp. Parmesan and Romano Cheese, grated
1/4 tsp minced garlic
2 heaping Tbsp. Greek yogurt, plain
1 Tbsp. butter
- Cook cauliflower in boiling water until tender, about 8 minutes.
- Drain using sieve or colander lined with heavy duty paper towels and pat dry while hot.
