A Vegetable Side Dish That Is Easy and Delicious

A Vegetable Side Dish That Is Easy and Delicious

Last night I was craving mashed potatoes.  Yes…I am 9 months pregnant.
My husband on the other hand is a Crossfit fanatic and will only eat a protein and two vegetables.  Thus my nightly dinner dilemma begins…how can we eat healthy and make it taste good too?

I saw I had a head of cauliflower in my fridge so I washed it, broke it into 1 inch sections and tossed it lightly in Extra Virgin Olive Oil with some sea salt.  I then popped it in the oven at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.

I took it out and stared at the bland cauliflower.  Last night I just needed a little something more to make it appealing to me.  I tossed a 1/2 tablespoon of butter in and 1/2 cup of feta cheese.  I took a fork to break down the cauliflower even more and then mashed it all together.

Welcome to my new favorite side dish.  It’s fast, simple, vegetable based and GOOD!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
