This creamy mashed cauliflower with a hint of sage is perfect with your favorite grilled steak.
A few years ago if you’d asked if beets or cauliflower would be on the dinner menu, I would have replied with an emphatic, “NO!”
But all it takes is one person to change your mind.
A coworker convinced me that there were other ways to eat beets besides the pickled version my mother served, and that steaming them could be fabulous. I gave it a try, and I’ve been a happy beet eater ever since. (No offense intended Mom – you’re a fabulous cook!)
The same holds true for cauliflower.
When I had a whole head of cauliflower to use or lose to the compost bin, I tried this cauliflower recipe from Farmgirl Fare.
Now mashed cauliflower is served as a side dish just as often as mashed potatoes, and why not? It serves up equally as creamy and I can herb it up with whatever I like.
In this mashed cauliflower recipe, a handful of sage adds an earthy appeal that worked perfectly with our grilled flank steak.
And why stop at cauliflower? This mashed parsnip recipe was just as good.
As I said, all it takes is one person to show you how to look at something in a new way, and your life is forever changed. Or at least you’re willing to eat beets and cauliflower.
Happy, healthy cooking!
