The simple mashed cauliflower turned out beautifully for my mom's birthday dinner! Since I was feeling confident with my cauliflower mash capabilities, I thought up a tasty twist for this dish to try out for the second time. With a few other simple additions, we created a delicious garlic and herb mashed cauliflower recipe, that would be fantastic along side any prime cut of meat. This recipe is a simple one that can be recreated without a high speed blender
  Cauliflower head 1 , washed and cut into florets
  Fresh rosemary 1 Tablespoon, chop
  Fresh thyme 1 Tablespoon, chop
  Vidalia onions 1 , chop
  Unsalted butter 2 Tablespoon
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), mince
  Black pepper To Taste
  Salt To Taste
For garnish
  Rosemary sprig 1 Small

1. Clean and wash the cauliflower, cut them in florets, chop the onions and garlic, keep it aside.
2. Wash the fresh herbs and chop, keep it aside in separate bowl.
3. Place the cauliflower in a steamer basket in a large soup pot, season with salt and pepper, and steam for 12 minutes or until soft.

4. In a pan over medium heat melt 1 tablespoon butter and saute the onion, garlic and the chopped herbs, saute until onion is translucent.
5. Adjust salt and pepper and once done remove from heat and keep it aside.
6. In a blender, blend the steamed cauliflower and the onion garlic mixture along with 1 tablespoon of butter.
7. Blend until smooth, garnish with sprig of rosemary or sprinkle ground pepper.

8. Serve the garlic and herb mashed cauliflower along with your roast.
