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!
