Recipe by southernmojo

A different way to make and old standby veggie. I like to puree mine to a texture similar to creamy grits.

Very good, I didnt miss the mashed potatoes I would have served at all. Used unsalted butter and enough skim milk to make a thicker puree so it would hold up to gravy. Next time I will get the Steamer's frozen cauliflower and cook it in the microwave to save some time. Made and reviewed for the Pick A Chef Orphanage - May 2012.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add cauliflower to a large pot, add enough water to cover, and set over high heat and bring to a boil.
  2. Cook until cauliflower is fork tender, roughly 12 minutes. Drain thoroughly. Return cauliflower to pot, add butter and let it melt and blend.
  3. Add half the milk and blend. Pour roughly blended pot mixture into a blender and puree.
  4. Add more milk, blending constantly, until desired texture is reached. Season with salt and pepper or creole seasoning.
