Mashed and Smashed Cauliflower

Potatoes aren't the only vegetable worth mashing! Actually, Mashed and Smashed Cauliflower makes a great alternative for when you want a change of pace from the typical potato side dish. These "cauliflower mashed potatoes" have a nice creamy taste and they're nutritious too!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 heads cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. Place cauliflower in a large pot and add just enough water to cover.
  2. Bring to a boil over high heat; cover and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Drain well and place in a large bowl.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and mash until mixture is well combined.

For a quick-and-easy baked version, add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and 4 beaten eggs to the mixture and place in an 8-inch square baking dish that has been coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F. oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until golden and set.

If you're making the baked version, do you need to boil it first?
