Like many other folks out there, we are planning to kick 2015 off with a healthy mindset. To get that mindset started a little early, I decided to make cauliflower mash instead of potatoes. I’m Broiled Lobster Tail for the main course, and with the richness of the lobster and the truffles, there just wasn’t any need to pack on the indulgence of white potatoes.
Truffled Cauliflower Mash
Serves 2-4 depending on hunger level and size of lobster tails!
- 1 head of cauliflower
- 1/3 c reduced fat sour cream
- 2 tbsp butter
- 3 tsp black truffle salt, more or less to taste
- 2 tsp black truffle oil
Chop cauliflower into medium sized pieces. Add to a medium saucepan with 2 inches of water at the bottom. Cover and steam until very soft, approximately 20 minutes, ensuring that there is always water in the pan.Add more if water boils off. Drain. Add sour cream, butter, and black truffle salt. Mash.Blend with a hand blender for smoother consistency if desired. Plate and drizzle with a small amount of black truffle oil.
