My mom was a bit over zelious one day at the Farmers Market and purchased a large head of cauliflower.  Being alone, I couldn’t imagine what she needed the big head for but being in the generation that she is “big is better”.  After we got home I asked Mimi (what we call my mom) about the cauliflower and she told me someone from her pool group gave a recipe out for mashed cauliflower.  Mimi told me I could “fix” the recipe so she could share it with her friends.  So here is the improved recipe that  I came up with.  So if you find yourself purchasing a very large head of cauliflower at the Farmers Market, try this out – it is delicious!    Enjoy!!!!  For comments/questions email ramona@lowfatdivablog.com

2   teaspoon butter

1/4 tsp of sea salt & ground pepper

 

 

Place cauliflower florets and garlic in a steamer basket over boiling water, cover and steam until very tender, 12 to 15 minutes.

Place the cooked cauliflower and garlic in a food processor or Magic Bullet.  Add buttermilk, 2  teaspoons melted  butter, salt and pepper; pulse several times, then process until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a serving bowl. Serve hot.  You can sprinkle some fresh grated Parmesan cheese on top or you can experiment with some chopped fresh herbs like basil, parsley or even lemon basil.
