Serves: 6
  • 1 medium head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into small florets (about 6 to 7 cups)
  • 4 cups homemade chicken stock or vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Fine sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  1. Bring stock to a boil in a large stock pot. Add cauliflower and cook until very tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and reserve the cooking liquid. Mash cauliflower using a potato masher. Add oil and reserved stock a little at a time to reach desired consistency. Using a stick blender puree cauliflower or continue mashing with a potato masher until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
  2. Reserve cooking liquid and use it to make cauliflower soup with any left over cauliflower mash later in the week.
