As a busy teacher trying to eat healthy, I'm trying to come up with some clever ways of getting my vegetables in during lunch without having to crunch on those carrots every day (boring). In addition to my yam mash (which was terrific for two weeks...but now I need something new) I'm going to try this cauliflower puree, adapted from a number of other recipes.

Recipe Ingredients for Cauliflower Puree

1 head, large (6-7" dia) Cauliflower
1 cup Milk, Nonfat, Fluid
1/2 tbsp Butter
1 dash Salt, Table

Recipe Directions for Cauliflower Puree

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the cauliflower and cook about 30 minutes or until very soft.

  2. Heat the milk, butter, and cheese in a separate pot until melted and creamy.

  3. In a blender, slowly puree the cauliflower with some of the milk/cheese mixture. Add in more of each slowly until all is smooth and blended.

  4. Season with salt, white pepper, and flavoring of choice (lemon always works with cauliflower, but I don't know how this will taste yet).
