This is a great way to get a hit of Vitamin B-12 into your family’s diet and some cauliflower which is fabulous source of Vitamin C and also Vitamin K. You can do the whole lot as a Cauliflower Mash and the family will never know the difference. Above all it’s an easy healthy side dish to serve up and filling, my boys will devour this every time. Leftovers are just as awesome.
Potatoes (at least 10 medium to large ones, washed, peeled if you’d like I leave the skins on for extra nutritional value)
1 head of Cauliflower
¼ cup Nutritional Yeast (or less if you are making a smaller batch) (click here to learn more about N. Yeast)
4-5 Tbsp. of Butter
4-5 Tbsp. of Milk
Salt and Pepper to taste
Choose a pot you want to use; I have a big 6 litre (1.5 Gallons) pot fill it with water.
As the water is warming up I cut enough potatoes to fill half of the pot, put them in the pot as you go. Let them cook while you, start cutting up at least ½ head of Cauliflower. After the potatoes have boiled for 5 minutes, add the cauliflower (cut more if you have more room), let the mix boil until you can insert a fork easily and both potato and cauliflower fall off.
Drain the water out (save about a cup of this water if you would like to not use milk). Put ½ of the potatoes and cauliflower into a food processor. Toss in ½ of the butter and milk (or ½ Tbsp of leftover water) and blend it up till there is room to add the rest. Add ¼ cup of Nutritional Yeast and the rest of the potatoes and cauliflower. Add salt and Pepper and blend again until smooth. Add the rest of the butter and milk/water or as much as you’d like and blend. I will normally taste it as I mix, to see if it needs more of butter/milk/water/salt/pepper.
Dish is up with your dinner main and enjoy.
