doyers + cauliflower mash

15 Oct

Happy Tuesday! I can’t believe it’s already Tuesday! Yesterday went by so fast and I’m sure it’s because I was so busy at work, but hey, I’m not complaining!

BTW, how amazing was the Dodger game last night?! Everyone at my house was nervous the entire game, but super happy about the win! Let’s hope we have another repeat of last night!Go Doyers!

Cauliflower Mash

After my long run on Friday I was craving something a little starchy and more filling, but I didn’t feel like potatoes. Instead, I decided to whip up something a little lighter by making cauliflower mash with thyme & caramelized onions.

1 head cauliflower

1/2 medium sweet or red onions, finely diced

2 garlic cloves, finely diced

Leaves of 5 sprigs of thyme

1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth

1-2 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk

1/4-1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Extra virgin olive oil

Salt + pepper


Heat 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil over low heat. Sauté onions and thyme until dark golden brown. Add garlic for the last 5 minutes, careful not to burn it.

While caramelizing the onions, steam cauliflower for 10-15 minutes or until very tender.

Put cauliflower in a large food processor, adding chicken broth & almond milk until it reaches your desired consistency. Blend until very smooth. Season with salt + pepper. Remove from processor into a medium bowl & combine onion, thyme & garlic mixture and Parmesan cheese with the cauliflower puree. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil & extra cheese (optional).
