Trying to get kids and some adults to eat vegetables can be tricky. Trying to limit you carbs and find hearty, comforting, side dishes can be challenging. Mixing up your week night dinners and getting out of a rut can be tiring. This recipe solves all of these problem and is quick and easy, and I even like it better than mashed potatoes.
Mashed Broccoli and Cauliflower
16 oz of broccoli and cauliflower florets (I bought them already mixed in a bag at my supermarket)
1 oz cream cheese (from the brick, not soft)
1/2 tsp salt
2T half and half or milk
Steam broccoli and cauliflower until soft, you could use a microwave steam bag or steamer ( you could even boil it in a small amount of water). Add cooked veggies, cream cheese, salt and half and half to a food processor and pulse until “mashed”, mash by hand if you don’t have a food processor, it just may be slightly chunkier. Serve, see I told you it was easy. Try doing cauliflower or broccoli solo too.
