Cauliflower Mash




This is so similar to mashed potatoes that you won’t really miss all that starch, and it’s so much healthier! And a wonderful way to add more vegetables to your diet!


1 large head of cauliflower, broken up into florets

1 package cubed pancetta from Trader Joe’s

3 cloves minced garlic

1/3 cup lowfat buttermilk

  1 T. Butter


1/2 cup shredded lowfat cheese

1 T. Chopped chives


Boil  the cauliflowe and garlic until the cauliflower is tender.

In the meantime, fry up the pancetta until it is crisp. Remove from pan  and place on a paper towel-lined dish to drain the excess fat. Set aside.

When the cauliflower is soft, drain it and put it back in the pot. Add the butter, buttermilk and seasonings. With an immersion blender, puree the cauliflower.

Add  in the chives and pancetta and mix well.

Place the cauliflower puree in 2 small casserole dishes. Sprinkle the cheese on top.

Broil them until the cheese starts to turn brown and get crunchy.
