I am a total sucker for anything truffle. I have made mashed cauliflower in the past, and had the brilliant idea of adding truffle. It is so packed with flavor, you will not miss the potato!
2 heads Cauliflower
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 cup Parmesan, grated
1/2 cup Skim Milk
3 tbsp Black Truffle Butter (or, make your own!)
Salt & Pepper
Preheat your oven to 425º. Cut the florets off of the cauliflower, and arrange on a baking sheet greased with non-stick spray (I like the olive oil kind when cooking savory dishes). Sprinkle with salt and pepper, as well as the minced garlic cloves. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until the cauliflower is fork tender.
Once the cauliflower has cooled slightly, place in a food processor. Add in the milk, cheese, and truffle butter. Note – I’ve found truffle butter at a few upscale grocery stores. However, I happened to have a shaved truffle packed in oil, so I decided to make my own butter for this. 1 tsp shaved truffles along with 3 tbsp unsalted butter – voila, you have homemade truffle butter! Blend everything together, and then serve. Seriously – this stuff is incredibly delicious!
