Comfort Food

Guilt-Free, on-the-side

March 19, 2015

imageHere is a side dish so easy, all you need to know how to do is boil water! And it will suit almost anyone at your table without ruining their diet.

It’s also vegetarian, grain-and gluten-free, and vegan, so it’s obviously super healthy but … it’s yummy enough to be a comfort food!
To prepare, gently place in a  medium pot:

3 Medium sized potatoes, cut into thirds, skin on
1 Small head cauliflower, cut into fourths. Include any leaves
1 Small onion, quartered
1 Sprig fresh rosemary
Salt & Pepper to taste, or add 1/2 any flavored cube of your choice.
1 – 1/2 cups water or just enough to cover. You will not be removing the water, so you don’t want the pot to boil dry, but you don’t want your dish to end up watery.

Boil all the vegetables together for about 18-20 minutes, or  until soft enough to purée.
Toss the boiled sprig of Rosemary.
Now sprinkle in a teaspoon of finely chopped Rosemary,
Purée the entire mixture until just slightly chunky.
Add a pad of butter (or Earth Balance substitute)
Serve hot.
Tip: Why tell your kids about the cauliflower? Also, for big and little kids who want some added comfort,mix in a small handfull of grated cheese (or cheese substitute for vegans) of your choosing. (Cheddar or Manchego would belovely, don’t you think?)
