Weather to cook

Categories: recipe   Recipes

Yup, fall is here. It’s cold and rainy. There’s some bite in the air.  Yup, just about perfect out for a jaunt in the woods.  If only I weren’t nursing my ankle.

(But hey! I did work out today.  I now remember that push ups and situps suck…I need to do more.)

This weekend, we tried a new recipe, and it came out good, so in lieu of saying anything of worth, I figured I’d share.  If you don’t like cauliflower, this is still good. (We’re not the biggest fans of it just steamed.)

  • Head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 onion
  • Garlic
  • 3-4 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • milk or soy milk
  1. Chop up the cauliflower and steam until really soft.  (10-12 minutes in the microwave should about do it.)
  2. While it's steaming, dice the onion.
  3. Sautee the onion in some of the butter. Add the garlic and continue the sautee until onions are soft.
  4. when the cauliflower is done, drain any water from steaming, if any.
  5. throw in the pan and saute with the onion/garlic until well mixed/flavored.  Add salt and pepper if desired.
  6. Throw it all in the food processor.
  7. Add rest of butter and blend well.  Add milk as needed to make it smoother.

Yummy!  Good replacement for mashed potato!
