Cauliflower purée - a good alternative to mashed potatoes

In a world occupied with low-carb diets and glycemic index, the potato is seriously scrutinized. The once important staple in our diet is accused of being fattening, and even unhealthy. These are certainly grim times for lovers of mashed potatoes, but there is hope. There are good alternatives to a potato mash. Try a cauliflower purée. It tastes heavenly good, and it is so easy to make.

Depending on how many you are going to serve use half a cauliflower for two people. Divide it roughly.

Heat up ½ liter of good stock (use a stock cube if you do not have homemade stock).

Boil the cauliflower until tender.

Remove cauliflower from the stock. Place in a bowl.

Add a little of the stock, while using a hand mixer, and then use a little single cream until the purée has the right consistency.

Serve the purée to fried fish, chicken or beef.
