Today is a big day… This morning I am taking Dad to his ct scan appointment, and then to meet with his doctors after the scan. I am hoping to find out some good news – we need some good news!
We all all thinking positive, Dad is smiling and doing well – I’m approaching today with all fingers crossed.
Last night’s dinner was another great roasted tofu recipe I will share soon – that I served on a bed of comfort – puréed cauliflower. I have seen this many times, and while I love cauliflower by itself, I wanted the consistency to be thick like mashed potato – so I added some oomph with beans – giving it a creamy taste and feel.
Add the garlic and butter – these are amazing. It was cold last night, with that great fall smoky scent in the air, and this was the perfect comfort food dinner.
cauliflower protein mash
dairy, soy, gluten and potato free, vegan
makes a large bowl of goodness
1 head cauliflower, greens removed
2 cloves garlic
1 can great northern beans (or your favorite white bean), drained and rinsed
1/4 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
2-3 tablespoons butter (Earth Balance soy free)
sea salt and pepper
optional add: cheddar
Chop / break cauliflower into small pieces, steam with garlic cloves until soft, 20-25 minutes (I used a bamboo stacked steamer). Combine cauliflower and garlic with beans and milk, purée in batches in high speed blender or food processor. Stir in butter, salt and pepper, transfer to serving bowl.
optional add: these are really good with the cheddar.
cross your fingers for us today, send positive thoughts our way? Happy Friday!
