Default Potato and Cauliflower Mash

I just tried this recipe last night and I wish I had tried it before.

It is effectively half potatoes and half cauliflower with some butter and salt. I used olive oil spread and about half what the chef suggests and it still ended up being very tasty. I liked this better than regular mashed potatoes.

Next time I'm going to try 3/4 cauliflower to 1/4 potato ratio for even lower calories.

I found a recipe for a cauliflower mash a while back myself. I HATE cauliflower, bet we kept getting it in our food co-op basket...

It is all just cooked cauliflower (no taters), with a tiny tiny bit of butter, a dribble of buttermilk and some salt and pepper.

Now I much prefer it to mashed potatoes and sometimes forget it is even a veg!

This is the recipe I tried from one of my cookbooks:

2 russet potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 tablespoon olive oil
2-4 tablespoons gluten-free vegetable broth
teaspoon salt
Several pinches freshly ground black pepper

1. Place the potatoes in a 4-quart pot in enough cold water to submerge them, making sure there are about 4 inches of extra water on top for when you add the cauliflower. Bring the potatoes to a boil. Once boiling, add the cauliflower and lower the heat to a simmer. Let simmer for about 15 minutes, until the potatoes and cauliflower are tender.

2. Drain them in a colander, return them to the pot, and use a potato masher to mash them a bit. Add the olive oil, 2 tablespoons broth and the salt and pepper and mash a bit more. Use a fork to make sure all the seasonings are mixed well. If needed, add another 2 tablespoons of broth. Taste for salt.
