I love mash potatoes, but sometimes I feel like taking a big nap after indulging in them. I decided to lighten my mash this time by forgoing the starchy potato and substituting it with broccoli and cauliflower. This mash was fabulous and I didn't have the crash and burn after eating them. So if you're going to eat some green food on St. Patrick's day... eat this. Tomorrow you will see what I made to go with this fabulous mash.
1 large head of cauliflower
4-5 cups broccoli florets
1 cup water (more as needed)
1 cup milk (or half and half)
2 Tbs butter
1 tsp granulated garlic
salt and black pepper to taste
1 cup cheddar cheese
add a little water at a time until both vegetables are tender enough to mash.
Next add butter, granulated garlic, milk, salt and black pepper.
Then add cheese and mash with a potato masher or a handheld blender for a more pureed mash. Serve as a side. Enjoy.
