What I’m listening to: the morning hush after the morning rush
It’s cauliflower season. Leading up to writing this post, I took to my social media pages to hear what my fans think about cauliflower. The verdict is in: they LOVE it! They love it steamed, roasted, raw, with cheese, in salad, with dip, and… mashed! Three cheers for cauliflower.
When I put these on the dining room table, my five-year-old daughter declared, “Yay! Mashed potatoes!” then took a bite and said suspiciously, “Hey, there’s broccoli in here!” I had to laugh out loud… and of course, then I told her she was very close and that it was actually cauliflower. So, while the mock mashed potato trick didn’t fool anybody at our house, we enjoyed these regardless – fluffy and flavorful, and nutritious too. If you’re trying to cut back on carbs, this is a great alternative.
And since there are so many cauliflower lovers out there, here are a few more fantastic cauliflower options:
