Garlic Mashed Cauliflower
This year, my goal is to have 3/4 of my plate filled with fruit and veggies. This is a healthy, tasty way to fill up the plate.
Dovetailing Tip: You already prepared the cauliflower for Meal 1. Because it is processed, you will only need to steam it for 5-7 minutes.
|1 head||cauliflower, cut into florets|
|1 tablespoon||olive oil|
|1 clove||garlic, smashed|
|1/4 cup||grated Parmesan cheese|
|1 tablespoon||reduced-fat cream cheese|
|1/2 teaspoon||kosher salt|
|1/8 teaspoon||freshly ground black pepper|
Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower, cover, and steam until tender, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until softened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
Transfer half the cauliflower to a food processor; cover and blend on high. Add remaining cauliflower florets, one at a time, until vegetables are creamy. Blend in garlic, Parmesan cheese, cream cheese, salt, and black pepper.
