Caleb and I made this yesterday to go with the Dill Cod. We really liked it. How can anything with cheddar cheese be bad?
Mashed Cheddar Cauliflower
- 1 large head cauliflower, chopped
- water to cover
- 3 Tablespoons Chicken Base
- 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
- 8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- pepper to taste
Place cauliflower into a large soup pot and cover with water. Add chicken base and dried onion. Bring to a boil and cook until tender and breaks apart with a fork. Drain water using a wire mesh strainer. If you use a colander you will loose quite a bit of the cauliflower down the drain.
Add cheddar cheese, heavy whipping cream and pepper and with a hand mixer mash the cauliflower to the consistency of mashed potatoes.
You may have to add salt depending on the brand of chicken base that you use. If you choose to omit the chicken base add salt to the pot while it is boiling. I think I will add additional cheese to it next time as well.
