To go with our lamb chops, I made my Parmesan Cauliflower Mash but decided to give it a different twist. I added a couple rounded tablespoonfuls of oven roasted tomatoes packed in oil (that I buy at Costco) to the cooked cauliflower along with cream, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese and butter before pureeing it with my stick blender. I absolutely love my stick blender for making cauliflower mash. You can puree it in the same pan you cooked it in without having to transfer it to a blender or food processor and then returning to the pan. Less mess and clean up and it makes it easy to cover the pan and keep warm or reheat slightly before serving. This cauliflower mash is absolutely smooth and luscious; you will never miss mashed potatoes after trying it! I snapped a few photos for you to see below. Here's the link to my recipe for: "Rich & Thick Parmesan Cauliflower Mash". The only modification I made to it this evening was the addition of the roasted tomatoes before pureeing. Enjoy!
