Obesity and Eating Disorder Recovery Blog: Mashed Cauliflower



In my experience, clients that are in treatment for bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia or bulimarexia are typically faced with an increased risk of inadequate nutrition. To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at ‘The Norton Center for Eating Disorders & Obesity’.

Eating healthy can be quick and easy once you get the hang of it. The key is in the planning. When you get into the habit of having the right ingredients on hand, meal preparation is a breeze, not a source of agony.

Mashed Cauliflower

  • 8 cups bite-size cauliflower florets (about 1 head)
  • 2-4 capfuls garlic juice
  • 1/2 cup Kalona cottage cheese or any organic, grassfed cottage cheese
  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin cold pressed organic coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Snipped fresh chives for garnish (optional)

The easiest way to grate cauliflower is to do it in a food processor using the grating blade. If you do not have one, a cheese grater works. The idea is to use as much of the head as possible. It should look like snow when you are done.

Place grated cauliflower into a microwaveable, covered dish. Do not add water. Microwave cauliflower for 3 minutes and drain well.

Place the grated microwaved cauliflower and the above ingredients in a food processor. Pulse several times, then process until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a serving bowl. Drizzle with butter and garnish with chives, if desired. Serve hot.

Serves 6.
