Cauliflower Mash Recipe by Catherine Marchetta

Hey Everyone! I am Catherine, from my self named blog Catherine Marchetta bringing you healthy living recipes and life tips. Today I am sharing Cauliflower Mash, it is super easy to make and delicious. I promise you won’t miss the potatoes in this recipe, the consistency and taste is so similar, it may even be…dare I say, better.

Recipe List: 

Frozen Cauliflower
Butter
Milk of choice (I used Almond)
optional: thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper

*Disclaimer: you will need a food processor, trust me on this…possibly a Vitamix would work too. Do not use a hand mixer, you will have cauliflower flying all over your kitchen. I may have learned that the hard way.

Firstly, you’ll need frozen cauliflower because we are busy and don’t have time to wring out the water in fresh cauliflower. Am I right? I love buying Trader Joe’s frozen grilled Cauliflower its gotta be one of my favorite items from there.


Directions:

Step 1: Place frozen Cauliflower or frozen riced Cauliflower (gather whatever serving size your heart desires), into a microwave safe dish with water covering cauliflower and microwave covered for 7 minutes.

Step 2: Drain water out of cauliflower dish and transfer to the food processor

Step 3: Add cauliflower, butter, garlic clove, splash of almond milk (you won’t need much since cauliflower is very water based) and pulse until smooth

Step 4: add salt, pepper, thyme and parmesan cheese.

Honestly this recipe is so easy I just eyeball everything measurement wise. It is super versatile and can be paired with vegan or paleo dishes and you’ll be sure to have leftovers.

Until next time!

My Review: Monday Glow E-Book

My best friend Catherine, and her older sister Annie put together an E-Book called “Monday Glow”. They created the book to help other girls just like me live their life in a healthy and happy way. I’m always down to try the hippest and hottest new health trends like going to a sweat lodge, or floating in a Dead Sea pool.

When I received the Monday Glow guide, I admit I was skeptical. I’ve tried many different fad diets such as paleo or juice cleansing (Blue Print to be exact), but I was pleasantly surprised to find the guide full of yummy meals with wholesome foods. After a weekend of dining out almost every meal, and going out with friends, I found myself lacking energy and feeling sick on Monday. This detox guide helped me to re-energize and get back on my daily grind.

My favorite meal from the Monday Glow Guide was Beauty Bowl for lunch. It was filling, vibrant and I loved all the nutritional information that came in the guide. I also loved the Egg Bake, which I’ve made before in a previous post. It’s one of my favorite recipes that Catherine has shared with me.

Overall, I would definitely recommend the Monday Glow guide to any girl who wants to kick start a healthy diet and get back on track after a fun weekend. This is a great guide that has realistic eating expectations, with a lot of delicious recipes.
