My children won't eat cauliflower. It's right up there with brussel sprouts and spinach. Raw, steamed, stir-fried or even tempura-coated, they aren't interested. I have yet to try chocolate-dipped but I'm sure they would just lick off the chocolate ;) (I jest, of course!) Sadly, I'd walk right by the cauliflower in the produce aisle, without giving it a second glance.
Oh how parents come up with different ways to get their children to eat veggies!
This is another easy-to-make recipe and a great addition to any dinner plate. Cauliflower is high in fiber and nutritionally dense. Coconut-anything, it seems, is all the rage and the new "super food" of the year. Coconut milk lends a nutty flavor to the mash while subtly masking the taste of cauliflower that my children dislike.
1/2 head cauliflower, coarsely chopped
1 cup coconut milk
3/4 tsp salt
Add all ingredients to a large pot with a lid. Cook over medium heat for 8-10 or until cauliflower is softened.
Remove from heat and mash with stick blender or potato masher until preferred consistency. Serve.
