CREAMY CAULIFLOWER "MASHED POTATOES"
1 large cauliflower (break up into florets)
1 tablespoon miso paste (see TIP)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
3-4 garlic cloves (toasted in a little olive oil)
1/8 teaspoon onion or garlic powder (or just a pinch)
1/4 teaspoon + pinch more sea salt (Celtic Sea Salt is an example of good sea salt)
DIRECTIONS: Using a food processor with an "S" blade, add in the ingredients and process until a mashed potato consistency is formed. Stop the food processor to scrape down the sides and get the lumpy cauliflower as needed.
GARNISH: Butter and Minced Greens (chives, parsley, kale, etc.)
TIPS: Miso is traditionally made from soy beans. For those looking for a soy-free version ask your local organic coop if they carry miso made out of garbanzo beans or Japanese Organic Barley Miso. Look for organic butter brands. For those looking for a non-dairy butter, Melt Butter Spread is made out of coconut oil and flax seed oil.
