We laughingly call this dish "Potiflower!" It's perfect with broiled or grilled steak or rib roast.

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 clove
garlic, minced
1
small cauliflower, cored
1
large potato, yukon gold or russet
salt and pepper
1/3 c
reserved cooking liquid
grated parmesan cheese
minced chives

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Peel the potato and dice coarsely. Cut the cored cauliflower into small pieces. Place both in a pot and barely cover with water.
2
Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer 20 to 25 minutes until very tender. Drain and save 1/3 cup of the liquid.
3
Smash the garlic clove with the flat side of a knife and mince. Add to the pot along with the reserved liquid and cook on medium heat until soft.
4
Return potato and cauliflower to the pot and mash roughly with a potato masher. Season with salt and pepper and stir until heated through. Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese and chives before serving.
5
HINT: To freeze chives when you have more than you can use, make sure they are completely dry, chop them up to whatever size you want, spread them out on a flat pan or cookie sheet and put them in the freezer. When frozen, scoop them up and store them in a tightly sealed jar or a freezer bag. They will be nice and loose in the container and you can easily take out the amount you need for cooking.
