Here’s a great side dish recipe to have in your recipe box because it can go with so many meals, it’s easy to make, and it’s nutritious. It has a texture that is like air, if you can imagine that. But, the catch is that you need a high speed blender to get it to perfection, preferably a Vitamix with the plunger.
Buttered Cauliflower Puree
Yield 4 servings
- 1 head of cauliflower, steamed** (learn how to break cauliflower florets apart here)
- 4 tablespoons grass fed, salted butter
- sea salt to taste
Blend the steamed cauliflower and butter until smooth, using the plunger to make the magic happen. Taste and season with sea salt, if needed.
** My favorite steamer is here. I love it! I used to have one of those cheapies you insert in the bottom of a pot. It would always fold in while trying to get out the veggies – total pain. Then, it was hot and couldn’t touch it. I found this awesome steamer insert and fell madly in love. It fits a couple of my pots, I can easily get all the veggies out at once by using the side handles and picking it up and dumping all veggies in a bowl of butter. The handles don’t get too hot to touch. Highly recommend.
