Mashed Cauliflower as a substitute for mashed potatoes

 

2 Heads White Cauliflower

4oz Skim Milk

1oz Butter

2oz Parmesan

Kosher Salt

Freshly Ground Black Pepper

 

Separate the florets from  the cauliflower and dice up the stalks.  Take half of the florets and caramelize them in olive oil in a heavy bottomed pan until cooked through.  Put the remaining cauliflower in a saucepot, cover with cold water, and bring to a boil.  Once tender, remove the water and add a high speed blender.  Add just enough milk, and butter to get the mixture spinning, and puree on high for several minutes.  Fold in the caramelized cauliflower, parmesan, salt, and pepper.
