One Pot Caulitoes!

Cauliflower is more than just a floret that smells weird and tries to pretend to be a colourless broccoli when you're on a ketogenic (or low carb) diet. It becomes like a flour to us. Or a potato. Or rice. Basically...cauliflower replaces the high in starch foods that are eaten by people who follow the SAD. One  of my favourite and super-duper easy ways to cook cauliflower is into caulitoes. Yes. A cauliflower mash that replaces potatoes. 

1 bag frozen cauliflower
2 cups broth
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tbsp salted better...uh...butter
1/4 cup pepper jack cheese shredded
2 tsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp granulated garlic
1/2 tsp lite salt

1 pot with lid
Wooden spoon
Measuring utensils

Let's get started!!!

First thing first, tear open the bag of cauliflower and dump into pot. Obviously, since it might be frozen come dinner-making time, either make sure it is thawed before hand or give it some time to thaw in the pot before starting. Having it a bit frozen before cooking means not having to add extra water which can result in creamier, but not watery, caulitoes.

Next, you're going to add in the broth followed by your seasoning and turn your stove on high. Put the lid on and wait for the bubbles to start forming (just like boiling potatoes).

The longer you let them boil and soften the less mess you'll have to deal with. I usually let ours go for a good 30 minutes boiling before removing the lid.

Once your cauliflower is super soft and liquid has evaporated, add in the heavy whipping cream and let boil for 10 minutes. If your cauliflower is to watery for your liking, let it boil even longer. However, be sure to not let it burn.

Now comes the fun part! In the same pot add in the butter and cheese and start mashing. Once again, depending on how soft the cauliflower is you might be able to do this with a wooden spoon or whisk. Mash and stir and taste until desired consistency and taste.

Serve with other low carb friendly foods! If you need some inspiration check out the links below!
