Mashed Cauliflower

A big handful raw cauliflower florets, probably about 1.5 cups or so

2 tbsp vegetable stock

1/2 of a garlic clove, minced

pinch of coriander

1/2 tbsp Earth Balance buttery spread (or butter or promise light)

salt and pepper to taste

In a microwavable safe tupperware, steam the cauliflower with about 1/4 cup water for about 2 minutes or until its tender, but not mushy. Drain the excess water and put the cauliflower in a blender with the remaining ingredients, minus the salt and pepper. Blend for about 20 seconds or so until the texture is creamy, leaving a few chunks. Take out of blender and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serves 2-3

    Any chance I could get the same result with a regular potato masher instead of the blender?
