Thanksgiving Day Smashed Cauliflower
Oh you guys!!! I was just doing some artwork this morning, letting out my creative side, when I realized it’s just a few short days until we’ll all be gathering with family sharing in the sweetest holiday of celebrating all of the things we are so blessed with! I can’t wait to be curled up next to a roaring fire, playing board games, eating yummy food, and laughing with those I love!!!
This recipe is one of my go-to’s any time of year, but it’s such a fun variation of mashed potatoes, I know it will make the perfect accompaniment to a roasted turkey + gravy, or my favorite…oooh, the stuffing! Ahh. I can’t wait!!
Head to your favorite grocery store and pick up a couple heads cauliflower, chop it up, boil it till it’s soft, and smash until it’s a desired consistency. It’ll be a little “grainy”, so throw in a little cream + butter and roasted garlic, salt + pepper to taste, and if you’re feeling extra crazy, a little fresh rosemary! It’ll be a hit, I know it. :)
I hope your thanksgiving is filled with traditions new and old, laughter, chunky blankets and chocolate desserts. If you have a favorite, remember to share in our Delight Culinary Arts group! We would LOVE to feature one of YOUR favorite Thanksgiving recipes or traditions!
Have the happiest Thanksgiving, and then it’ll be Christmas! Just wait till you see what we have up our sleeve to share… ;)

1-2 heads of cauliflower, 1 large one, or 2 small ones :)
Break up cauliflower into chunks, and place in a pot of boiling water. Boil until soft, like pasta :) Drain and puree in cuisinart, hand blender, or kitchen aid.
Add in ::
1/4-1/2 cup of cream (or coconut milk) OR … chicken broth
4 TBS butter, because we all need a little butter OR…1 TBS chicken stock base
2 TBS fresh rosemary
3 cloves roasted garlic, or fresh, finely chopped

if you want to get extra crazy, you can whip in some plain greek yogurt or sour cream for a creamier version!
Drizzle a little gravy over the top, and you have a healthy variation of mashed “potatoes”!
