Mashed Cauliflower / Helpful Hints



Similar to the last post, mashed cauliflower is a tasty alternative. I'm a firm believer in microwaving my veggies, even over steaming them. When you boil veggies, all those good vitamins are thrown out with the water you boiled them in. That's why steaming or microwaving is so much better.
This recipe calls for you to use butter. Somewhere along the line, we were told that butter was bad for us and most of us switched to cheap margarine-butter substitutes. Now our long term studies find that our body just doesn't break down the likes of margarine and it's an artery clogger. This is great news to me as I love the taste of butter, especially on popcorn, right?

1 bunch Cauliflower
1/2 stick butter
3/4 cup buttermilk


Pull apart cauliflower and place in a microwave bowl with 1/4 cup water. You can put saran wrap over the top, to speed up cooking. Cook till tender and mash. Add the butter as you mash and buttermilk to your desired consistency. Salt and pepper to taste.

This is really nice with a baked breast of chicken.

Remember, to eat breakfast like a King, lunch like a Pauper and dinner like a poor man! Eating light at night is the key to weight loss. Your body's metabolism shuts down, under normal circumstances, around 6PM every night. Anything after that time is not even burned but kept, stored and made into fat.
