Mashed Cauliflower

1 head cauliflower
1.5 cups vegetable broth
pinch salt
pinch pepper
cheddar cheese

Quarter cauliflower and cut off all stem pieces. Cut into chunks and put in pot with stock salt and pepper. Boil for about 15 minutes. Check and when cauliflower is fork tender smash it with a potato masher. If there is too much liquid you can pour some out. Top with cheese.

With out cheese it is about 30 calories for a cup of the mashed cauliflower. You can add butter and what not, I just didn't think it needed it. Also it doesn't need this much cheese but my husband HATES veggies so I had to hide them from him under cheese. I thought these kicked ass and had great flavor. This can also be mixed in with actual mashed potatoes to hide them from kids (although I gave it to my son and told him it was mashed potatoes and he loved it), it can also be mixed into macaroni or other things to help get your kids to eat. I'm sure their are fancier versions out there, but I really enjoy tasting my food and not always tasting a bunch of spice. Some call me boring or bland, but I just really enjoy tasting the actual food I'm cooking!
