Cauliflower Mashed “Potatoes”

The more I cook paleo the more I find myself adding quotes to my recipe names. The quotes usually mean “trying really hard not to be paleo, but doesn’t quite taste like the real thing”. Well, this doesn’t taste like potatoes, but it is a darn good substitute! This is the second time I made them. The first time they were terrible and to worth sharing with the world. Second time must be the charm! Wow, we’re these delicious! I’m not one to lie to people, but you could totally pass these veggies off to your kids as starchy mashed potatoes!

1 head cauliflower – washed and cut into florets
1/4 cup almond milk
2 Tbsp. coconut oil spread (Olivio makes one that is incredible!)
Salt & pepper to taste

1. Boil a large pot of water and add cauliflower. Allow to cook for at least 10 minutes until the cauliflower is soft. I hate mushy veggies, but this is the time to over cook it!
2. Strain cauliflower and transfer to your food processor. Add milk and coconut spread, and blend until smooth. It will take longer than expected,so make sure to let it run for at least 4-5 minutes.
3. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy!
