The Magic of Cauliflower Puree

Mac and Cheese with Cauliflower

Mac and Cheese with Cauliflower

If you haven’t picked up Jessica Seinfeld’s cookbook, Deceptively Delicious, I highly recommend it.  A lot of the recipes have been tested by campers and so far we have yet to hit a dud.  Each recipe incorporates a vegetable puree, which instantly ramps up the food’s nutritional value yet your family won’t even know it is there.

One of the versatile purees is made with cauliflower. Although available in different colors, the most common is white.  All colors contain high amounts of vitamin C, folate, and fiber, making it an excellent vegetable to add to your meals on a regular basis. A half cup of this cauliflower puree can be added to banana bread, chicken alphabet soup, hamburgers, lasagna, mac and cheese, scrambled eggs, and more.

Preparation: Cut off florets and discard core.

Cook: Steam for 8 to 10 minutes.

Puree: In a food processor or blender for about 2 minutes, with a few teaspoons of water if needed for a smooth and creamy texture.
