- 1 large
- head cauliflower

- 1/4 c
- greek yogurt
- salt & pepper to taste
- whatever seasonings, to quote the pioneer woman, make your skirt fly up.
- herbs & spices, roasted garlic, parmesan, cheddar, bacon
- you can also even steam some onion slices, garlic cloves, cubed celeriac, rutabaga or any other veg that would go in mashed potatoes with the cauliflower
ADD-INS FOR WHEN YOU WANT IT FANCIED UP
Put on water to boil for steaming the cauliflower.
Rinse, trim and remove leaves at the base.
You can steam the cauliflower whole or break/cut it up.
(If you are adding extra veg in, place them in the steamer first and put the cauliflower on top of them. If a veg has a longer cooking time, such as celeriac, steam it alone first until it begins to soften, then add the cauliflower)
Don't overcook or your dish will be watery!
. . . someone forgot and tried to finish it in the steamer - which did not work well & they recieved a lot of teasing! (though it is good for a laugh but then again makes a mess)
(You can add any exta seasonings herbs or spices, including roasted garlic, now too.)
Or you can mash with a potatoe masher until you are satisfied, which will give a rougher texture but some folks prefer it,
or put through a ricer (I just got bought old ricer at a flea market, haven't tried it out yet so I don't know what texture this will produce).
If you haven't already added any extra seasonings herbs or spices, do so now, taste and adust.
Stir in extras such as cheese and bacon.
