Indian Spiced Mashed Cauliflower
- 1 medium to large head cauliflower, cut into florets
- 2 Tablespoons oil
- 1-1/2 teaspoons yellow or brown mustard seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
- 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
- 1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro
Make It Happen
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the cauliflower and cook until the cauliflower is easily pierced with a fork, about 6 minutes. Drain very well and return to the stockpot over the still warm (but turned off) burner. Cover and let sit for 2-3 minutes. Place the cauliflower florets in the base of a food processor or high speed blender. Process until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and scoop onto a shallow serving bowl.
In a small saucepan heat the oil over high heat until the oil begins to smoke. Add the mustard seeds and immediately cover with a lid or a splatter screen. When the mustard seeds begin to slow down/stop popping, add the turmeric, cayenne pepper and red onion. Cook, stirring, for about a minute, just until the onion begins to soften. Scatter the mixture over the cauliflower and garnish with the cilantro leaves. Swirl the mixture together just before serving.
