Cauliflower Mash with Miso and Sage
Mashed cauliflower is a delicious, low-starch alternative to mashed potatoes. Here, we’ve flavored it with tangy miso and fresh sage, but you could also season the mash with olive oil and your favorite herbs.
1. Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned.
2. Add cauliflower, carrot, and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 10 to 12 minutes, or until vegetables are very tender. Add 2 to 3 Tbs. water if pot becomes too dry before vegetables are cooked.
3. Drain off any liquid. Pour cauliflower mixture into food processor, add miso and sage, and purée 2 to 3 minutes, or until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
