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.

Ingredients: 

Ingredients: 

Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. vegetable oil
Ingredient Line: 
⅔ cup chopped onion
Ingredient Line: 
5 cups chopped cauliflower florets (1 lb.)
Ingredient Line: 
1 medium carrot, cut into ¼-inch-thick slices
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. white miso
Ingredient Line: 
⅛ tsp. ground sage

Instructions: 

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.

Don't buy the miso. You don't want that around if you're leaving.

This was a little too sweet for my tastes. I didn't have sage, not sure if that made a big difference.
