Fagan Eats Paleo Recipe: Paleo Cauliflower Puree


I have always loved mashed potatoes.  Always.  Since mashed potatoes aren't Paleo approved, I'm on the lookout for acceptable replacements.  I've created a lovely velvety cauliflower puree that almost makes me forget about mashed potatoes.  Almost.  And it's super easy to make.  


Paleo Cauliflower Puree




1.  First, chop up the cauliflower florets.  




2.  Then, peel the garlic.  You can leave it whole or roughly chop it a little.  




3.  Then put it in the steamer, sprinkled with a little salt.  



After it's done steaming, you put it all in the blender with the butter and some chicken stock and puree until smooth.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  I'm currently working on variations of this puree with broccoli and other ideas.  So stay tuned.  Hope you enjoy!
