Vegan Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

Vegan Garlic Mashed Cauliflower - from Canned-Time.com

Yesterday I stopped at a favorite local orchard on my way home from work and really hit the jackpot.  The biggest, most perfect looking head of yellow cauliflower I’ve ever seen.  It must have been more than 8 inches across.  What to make out of all that?

I mean some people get excited going to Atlantic City?  I got dizzy just carrying this thing into the house I was so thrilled.  Okay, get a grip.  I was really just happy that I’d have a chance to play with the flavors and make up some creamy mashed spicy cauliflower for dinner this week.  Turns out a whole pot full still only used 1/2 the head….this thing is BIG!

 I know I make too many spicy recipes.  We like it spicy.  But you can always just leave out the spice.  I wouldn’t.  But you can.Vegan Garlic Mashed Cauliflower - from Canned-Time.com

    I love the look of this dish. Spicy is just fine with me but I have never attempted to make mashed cauliflower before. I love cauliflower and adore it overdone and mushy so no doubt I would love this. Going to give it a go when I pick up some cauli’s next Monday (fortnightly shopping day) and will grab an extra one just for this side :). Cheers for sharing.

        Nah…we live 50km away from the supermarkets and are penniless student hippies. THAT is why we shop fortnightly, we can’t afford the fuel! When we lived in town we were 4 houses away from a supermarket. We could be found dragging our sorry asses (all 4 of us, usually at different times) up to the supermarket at all hours of the day. I may/or may not have even gone there in my pyjamas at almost closing time to pick up puffed garbage snacks on more than one occasion. To be sure, it’s making us more reliant on ourselves as the snack providers but we were more pushed in the right direction to be less consumeristic than by any healthy desires of our own 😉

      It sounds silly to a normal person but having nursed a pepper plant for an entire summer one year just to get an apricot sized green pepper to eat….I have great respect for those who can grow something so efficiently and gorgeous to boot 😉
      Still have half that bad boy in the fridge!

      Thank you Becky. As you know, we have to ramp up the veggies so our carnivore friends will still goble them down without a fuss about the non-dairy thing….glad you like them. Let me know if you try them out with your hubby. There’s a gazillion variations I’m sure you can improve and explore with your own cauli as well.
      Thanks for stopping by 😉
