1-2 heads of cauliflour steamed. Keep warm.
Salt to your taste
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tblsp butter melted
1/4-1/2 cup of Soy or Almond milk
Place all ingredients with the exception of milk into a large enough bowl and proceed to mash using a potato ricer. Mash until the consistency of mashed potato. Add milk and continue to blend. Taste for flavor. Add salt if needed. You can also add a pinch of cayenne or nutmeg if desired. This is an excellent replacement for potatoes and for children you can mix half potatoes and half cauliflour to blend. Reduce your calories and increase your nutritional intake.
