My recipe today is CRAZY easy! Seriously simple and really healthy!!! It might sound a little weird but it’s delicious! Let’s talk about it a second. Roasted garlic = yum. Cauliflower = yay vegetables. Protein = yes please. Here it is, Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Protein Mash.
Roasted Garlic Protein Cauliflower Mash
- 1 head of Cauliflower, chopped and cleaned
- 1 Can Cannelloni or Great Northern Beans, rinsed and drained
- 2-3 Cloves of Garlic (depending on how strong you want the garlic flavor to be)
- Salt and Pepper, if desired
Steam the cauliflower, I prefer doing this on the stove-top with a stainless steel steamer basket in a large sauce-pot with water. Meanwhile, roast the cloves of garlic. Place the un-peeled garlic cloves on a pan and drizzle with olive oil. Roast in a 350 degree preheated oven for about 20 minutes. Remove and allow to cool before peeling.
Once the cauliflower is steamed, transfer it to a food processor and add the beans. Pulse until smooth, then add the peeled garlic. Pulse again until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
