It doesn’t get a whole lot easier than this. Guiltless mashed “potatoes” –made from cauliflower. I have posted many variations on this theme. This is only the latest. You can really add anything to these that you might add to a mashed potato. I have been regrowing scallions from the white rooted ends of scallions I bought & used. All you do is put the ends in some water as instructed HERE & in about a week – once they get going – transplant them in some dirt. Brilliant! Anyway – I have lots of homegrown scallions now & wanted to use some – hence this recipe.

Super Ultra Easy and Guiltless Vegan Mashed Cauliflower with Chives and Scallions
1 head cauliflower cut up into large florets
1/4 cup chopped scallions and/or chives
1 TBS vegan (or other) butter
Homemade (or other) almond milk to taste (I used none)
Salt & pepper to taste (use a lotta salt)
Extra chives and/or scallions as garnish
Boil the cauliflower about 10-12 minutes or until soft. Drain & return to the pan. Mash with salt, herbs & butter. I used an immersion blender. A potato masher or a food processor would both work, too. I added no almond milk because I like these guys on the thicker side but you can add as much as you need to get the texture you prefer. Season with S&P & garnish with more chopped herbs!
