1 head of cauliflower
that’s it! Just one ingredient!
Put a pot of water on the stove top to boil..
Cut up your cauliflower into pieces..
Let your cauliflower boil for about eight minutes, or until they are fork tender..
Strain your cauliflower over the sink, then transfer it into a bowl..
“mash” your cauliflower using an immersion blender. If you don’t have an immersion blender (which you totally should, it’s amazing!) you could probably use a blender, but I’ve never tried it with a one. With an immersion blender, simply pulse it until the cauliflower is smooth and creamy.
Add whatever spices, or add-ins you would like. I topped mine with just some pepper, sea salt, and garlic powder. Then, enjoy!
