Just another Meatless Monday

Once upon a time there was a restaurant chain named “99” that was ahead of its time and served mashed cauliflower in lieu of potatoes. I mean really ahead, like in the 2000’s…and then inexplicably, just as we got to the ‘carbs will kill you’ phase of the 2015’s, they took them off the menus! Rat finks….

What’s a girl to do, but figure out her own way to make cauliflower the non carb base for some tasty kitchen items. Everyone is in on it…even Pioneer Woman did an episode on Saturday about it!

Take a head of cauliflower and whazz it up in your food processor. It should look like rice or smaller. I then cooked it down in a pan with a little water and olive oil, salt and pepper. I mixed in the end of a container of shredded parm and a bot two tablespoons of goat cheese to make it creamy and continued to cook it until it was soft and polenta like.

I topped with an oil poached egg and about a tablespoon of the confit tomatoes from last weekend’s production. Very satisfying meatless meal!
