Coconut Cauliflower & Herb Mashed ‘Potatoes’

Evernote Snapshot 20131208 195703

First off, there are no actual potatoes in this recipe. It’s cauliflower and celeriac (a celery bulb) mashed together in potato-like fashion. Don’t expect the texture to be the exact same, but the flavor is great and it functions just as well as a side dish that’s a little healthier for you.

If you were making this for a party or the holidays you could go even more rich by substituting coconut cream instead of coconut milk. I was able to find both at Trader Joes.

Once you have it all blended if you want it to be a little more smooth you can add some veggie stock and blend again. I would only add 1/4 cup at a time so it doesn’t overpower the flavor or water it down too much.

    Yum!! I’m made cauliflower mash before but never with coconut milk. Excited to try this!!

    • Awesome! I think it goes really well with Coconut milk. This was the first time I did it with the herbs. Usually I go more indian flavors with curry, cumin, etc.

  2. I have a head of cauliflower sitting in my fridge. Going to pick up some celeriac and try this!
