Ingredients

  • 1 head (1 3/4 pounds) cauliflower, stem and tough stalks trimmed, florets roughly chopped
  • 1 cup water or chicken stock, preferably homemade
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened

For the Seasoning

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Combine cauliflower and water or chicken stock in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until cauliflower is very tender, about 10 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Using a slotted spoon, transfer cauliflower to the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth, adding 1 to 2 tablespoons cooking liquid, 15 to 20 seconds. Add sour cream and butter, and process 5 to 10 seconds more. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.

  3. Step 3

    For a garnish, saute a few sliced cauliflower florets in a bit of butter until tender and lightly golden.

    A simple and delicious recipe. This is a great alternative to mashed potatoes.
