Okay, I am the girl who really hates vegetables--basically of all kinds. I am trying really hard to acquire a taste for them. And I have finally learned to eat quite a few--but I have a loooong ways to go.

BUT this recipe was NOT hard at all -- I AM IN LOVE WITH IT. It became a favorite of mine tonight!!! Hubby, guests, and baby loved it too.

Probably not new to most....but I am passing it on just in case you have never tried it.

I found it at one of the BEST blogs for recipes that I have found -- Check it out!

Mimi gives more details and TONS of pictures.

Mashed Cauliflower

1 head of cauliflower
3-4 Tablespoons butter
3-4 Tablespoons half and half

Remove all leaves and the stem on the head of cauliflower. (I knock the stem part on the divider in my double sink and the entire stem will come off of the head.)

Cut cauliflower into florets.

Place florets in salted boiling water and cook until fork tender; about 10 minutes. (I think it took a little longer than 10 min--we just kept testing with fork)

Remove from burner and drain cauliflower in colander until well-drained.

Pour cauliflower florets into bowl of food processor.
Pulse and grind cauliflower until all pieces are mashed well; stopping to scrape down sides as needed.

Gradually add butter and half and half to mashed cauliflower while pulsing -- until mixture is the consistency of mashed potatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Pour mashed cauliflower back into your pan. Keep warm on Low heat until ready to
