This recipe harks from my familie's days on the Atkins diet. Although it's no replacement for mashed potatoes, that doesn't mean it's not damn good! The subtle cauliflower flavor comes through really strong, and is complemented well by the leek. You can make it as cheesy as you want and add any herbs and spices that come to hand. Trust me, you'll like it.
- 1 head cauliflower, chopped
- 1 large leek, sliced
- 4 cloves garlic
- 2 wedges spreadable cheese (french onion or swiss flavor)
- 1 tbsp butter (optional)
Boil Cauliflower, Leeks, and Garlic in water until tender. Strain and blend in a food processor with cheese, butter if desired, and any spices you want to add until smooth or your desired texture. Transfer back to pot, heat, and enjoy.
