Parmesan Truffle Cauliflower Mash
PARMESAN TRUFFLE CAULIFLOWER MASH
FOOD AS MEDICINE:
Cauliflower is low in carbohydrates and is incredibly nutrient dense, making it a great base for soups, purees and mashes as well as a starch replacement! Cauliflower contains powerful sulfur compounds that have the ability to protect against cancer and detoxify the body, as well as significant amounts of vitamin C, K, folate, choline, and fiber.
1 medium head cauliflower, chopped into florets (about 4 cups)
1 Tablespoon grassfed butter
1 teaspoon truffle oil
¼ cup full fat coconut milk or whole milk
¼ cup parmesan cheese, grated
½ teaspoon sea salt
Fresh herbs for garnish
Bring a large pot filled with about 6 inches water to boil. Once boiling, add the cauliflower pieces. Boil about 10 minutes, uncovered, until cauliflower is tender.
Drain the water and add the butter, truffle oil, milk, cheese and sea salt. Mash with a potato masher or use an immersion blender for a smoother texture. Add more salt or truffle oil to taste as needed. Serve topped with fresh herbs and an additional drizzle of truffle oil.
