Cauliflower Puree…Silky & Creamy

Smoooooooooooooooooooooth and ultra good!

Cauliflower Puree is my “GO-TO” item when I need one more something for plating. Simple, super quick and I always have these ingredients on hand. (at least 3 bags of frozen cauliflower rice in the freezer at all times!)

Shown here with my Moroccan Baked Fish, this Creamy Cauliflower Puree is so easy and foolproof! I must serve it once a week, at least, but I'm always changing it up with various spices, oils or just plain...MORE GARLIC!

Ingredients

  • 1 bag of pre-cut Riced Cauliflower. I love 365's frozen...great price and super handy in the freezer. Of course, you can use 1 head of cauliflower, cored and cut into 2" florets.
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2/3 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 clove garlic, mashed
  • Salt
  • Cayenne pepper

Instructions

1

Heat oven to 325 degrees.

2

Boil a pot of water with a tablespoon of salt. Add the cauliflower and simmer until very soft (about 7-8 min). Drain well.

3

Place the cauliflower on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes to dry out any moisture. This step seems time-consuming, pre-heating oven, etc, but I just know that it's part of the reason it becomes SO silky!

4

In a small saucepan, combine the heavy cream with the butter and bring to a simmer over moderate heat just until the butter is melted. OR you may use the microwave for this but keep an eye out.

5

Add the cauliflower and warm cream mixture to the food processor or blender. Process until smooth, 30-60 seconds, scraping down the sides with a spatula occasionally.

6

If it's thicker than you like, thin out with more cream. Season with salt and cayenne and stir again. (adjust the level of cayenne to your personal preference of spicy)

7

If you're not serving immediately, put this in a microwave safe bowl and reheat just before serving for 30 seconds, stir, and another 30 seconds.
