We're going to keep the mash a little lighter and use cauliflower. You heard that right everyone. Mashed Cauliflower!
Not just any mashed cauliflower, I’m about to give you my mashed cauliflower gratin.
If your kids aren't big veggie fans, this is a great trick (Shhhhh!! Don’t tell them). They won’t be able to tell the difference.
Here we go people, my mashed cauliflower gratin recipe:
Food Pressor (If you don’t have one, you can use a potato masher or fork)
Deep dish pan
Step 1: Cut the cauliflower into florets and toss them into a pot of boiling water for roughly around for 15 minutes or until fork tender. Set some florets to the side and finely chop them for the topping.
Step 2: Time to make the topping while the cauliflower is cooking. On a baking sheet or a large surface, combine the raw florets (finely chopped), about 1/2 cup of panko, 1/4 of parmesan cheese, salt, and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Mix it around and admire your topping.
Step 3: Set your oven at 400 degrees for the upcoming step. Then put the cooked cauliflower into the food processor. Add salt, 1/8 cup of parmesan cheese, and about 1/4 of almond milk. Pulse it until all of the cauliflower is mashed and it looks like mashed potatoes.
Step 4: Transfer the mashed cauliflower to a deep dish pan. Add the topping to the mashed cauliflower and spread it around until it is even. Toss it in the oven for about 20 min (if you are really short on time, put the oven on broil and leave the gratin in until the top is golden brown).
Step 5: Take it out of the oven and let it sit for about 2mins to cool down. Serve when ready! BOOM!!!
