cauliflower mash

mashed cauliflower is a great alternative for mashed potatoes and it's seriously good (at least i think so).  

mashed cauliflower

2 heads cauliflower, coarsely chopped
6 14-oz cans low sodium chicken broth (10.5 cups)
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup parmesan

bring cauliflower and chicken broth with garlic to a boil.  reduce heat to med-high and continue to boil for about 40 minutes (or until fork-tender).

once the cauliflower is soft, drain the broth and blend or mash (i use my immersion blender).
mix in 1/2 cup grated parmesan and pepper.

if you're not going to eat the mash right away (i.e. using for meal prep as i did this time around), then it's important to drain the liquid completely once you've "mashed" the cauliflower.  put a colander or a sieve in a large bowl and then add the cauliflower.  transfer to the fridge while prepping the rest of the meals and drain the water as needed.

(you don't want that liquid in with your prepped meals -- yuck!)

this recipe will yield 6-8 servings and the sodium content listed below is not accurate as it assumes the broth will not be drained prior to consuming while the majority of it will be.
