Mashed Cauliflower

May 24, 2017 in Category: What's New

Although mashed potatoes are considered a culinary sidekick, it’s difficult to deny how crucial they are to their pairing partners. Where, for example, would bangers be without mash? And the Thanksgiving turkey without mashed potatoes? Unthinkable.

If you’re looking to lessen the nutritional impact that accompanies said side dish, however, it can be tough to find a creamy replacement that stands up to the might of the mashed potato on a dinner plate. Enter Trader Joe’s Mashed Cauliflower.

To give this dish dimension, our supplier utilizes not one, but two different cuts of cauliflower—in fact, cauliflower accounts for more than 70% of the recipe! Blanched cauliflower bits are simmered with skim milk, half & half and butter for creaminess, and then rice flour, garlic, salt and pepper are added to create a velvety purée.

Finally, larger chunks of cauliflower florets are added to give this Mash toothsome texture. When the mixture has cooled, it’s punctiliously portioned into petite pucks, so you can prepare what you need when you need it, and save the rest for later. Mashtastic!

Serve Mashed Cauliflower alongside a hot-off-the-grill, bone-in ribeye steak. Pair it with Green Jackfruit simmered in Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce. With just 50 calories, two grams of fat and seven grams of carbs per one-cup serving, it makes for a low-impact—yet flavorful—savory side dish.

We’re selling 16-ounce bags of Trader Joe’s Mashed Cauliflower for the mashtastic price of $2.99, everyday. You’ll find them in our freezer case.
