Sometimes the best food for me is the one that is simple in terms of ease of the recipe and number of ingredients. We always get compliments on my food and I have noticed that often it is the simple less complex foods that get the greatest praise.
Cooking and making delicious food is an art and it’s also and intuitive process; By that I mean that when I make something, and taste it, I have an intuitive sense to add more of something or to balance the layers of flavors in a certain way. This intuitive piece comes with years of experience and the development of a sixth sense . . . we’ll call this one the food sense.
Don’t let that scare you though! You can still make delicious simple food at home by following closely the recipes of someone who has this sense and can translate it into a recipe with exact measurements for you. Let me show you how.
At Jennifer’s Kitchen we make a mashed potato substitute with Cauliflower.
Let me tell you it’s not your mama’s cauliflower. It’s delicious and because cauliflower is not a starch it’s better for you too! It’s low carb, our clients rave about this dish, and it’s simple really!
Here’s how to make it:
You will need
1 Head of Cauliflower
1-2 Tablespoons of Organic Butter
1-2 Tablespoons Parmesan Cheese grated
There are a couple of optional ingredients, you can add some almond milk, or organic milk or cream just start slowly and do it to taste.
Wash and cut the cauliflower into florets removing the stem and leaves.
Steam the cauliflower until tender
Mash the cauliflower with a potato masher
Add Butter and Parmesan and mix well
Salt and Pepper to taste
Add cream or almond milk if using
Mix and enjoy!
Here’s where it gets a little tricky. The quality of the products that you use will dictate the amount of flavor that you will be able to extract from the food. I like to use organic and locally grown produce and always recommend organic dairy if including dairy in a recipe.
Take the challenge yourself and you will quickly see that good quality equals GREAT taste!
