Garlic-Mashed-Potatoes-and-Cauliflower

Ingredients

1 large head cauliflower

5 large cloves garlic

Celtic Sea Salt

2 tablespoons grassfed butter

¼ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

Fill a large (6-quart)  pot with an inch or two of water. Place a steamer insert in the pot, cover with a lid, and put the pot on a burner set on high.

While waiting for the water to boil, wash and trim the cauliflower. Cut up the florets and stem. Slice up all the garlic cloves.

Once the water in the pot is boiling, throw in the stems, half of the florets, and all of the garlic. Salt everything liberally.

Then, put in the rest of the cauliflower, season with more salt, replace the lid, and steam everything until soft (~10 minutes).

Drain everything into a colander, and then dump it all into food processor fitted with the steel knife attachment. Season with some fresh cracked pepper and microplaned nutmeg. Add the butter.

Process everything until smooth. Season to taste. These faux “mashed potatoes” reheat beautifully in the microwave.

tzatziki

This recipe was shared with me from one of my greek clients! Great to eat with vegetables, toasted Ezekiel bread and on sandwiches too!

Ingredients

Large container of Fage 0% yogurt

1 cucumber

2-6 cloves of garlic (really, however much you like)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp red wine vinegar?(the oil and vinegar measurements are approximations, I don’t measure when I make it)

Directions

Strain the yogurt using cheese cloth for 1-2 hours. The greek yogurt is generally pretty good about not having a lot of liquid in it, but if you use any other brand than Fage, it’s really important that the yogurt gets drained for long enough.

Cut the cucumber into quarters and remove the middle section that contains the seeds.

After the seed have been removed, grate the cucumber with a cheese grater

 Once the yogurt is strained, mix in the cucumber

 Add the garlic. I normally use a garlic press for this, but if you’re not using a garlic press, mince the garlic

 Add the red wine vinegar and olive oil

The tzatziki tastes best after it has had some time to sit, so that the flavors can all come together
