Who needs mashed potatoes with this keto friendly staple?




Boil the cauliflower in a large pot of salted water until very tender, on the verge of mushy, approx 8-10 minutes.

Drain and transfer to a food processor and blend with the rest of the ingredients, until smooth. Taste and adjusting the seasoning as necessary. Serve as you would mashed potatoes, alongside roasted or braised meats or under a mountain of gravy.

Since I was a kid, I loved spending time in banquet hall kitchens; I was mesmerized by the churning of giant vats of sugo, bubbling away, poised to feed thousands at a time. I constantly strived to absorb as much food knowledge as possible. After spending time in exploring European and Asian cuisine I moved to New York City to study at the International Culinary Center. I gravitated towards the Farm to Table program where I took my education to the field – literally – cultivating the ties between agriculture, cuisine, and sustainability, and working with the chefs from the 2 Michelin starred restaurant on the property. It was an experience that shaped my entire philosophy as a cook. I’ve continued to feed my culinary curiosity by working in food styling, as a boutique caterer and as a pastry chef.
I’ve been blessed to spend my lifetime learning about food, and nothing makes me happier than sharing my experiences, knowledge, and meals with as many people as I can. I’ll never be done learning, nor will my appetite ever be satisfied. Am I a chef? Nope. I'm just Emma.
