This is my favorite side dish, hands down. However, if you want to eat the entire bowl it also makes a great dinner all on its own!

1 head of cauliflower, chopped
handful of fresh chives, chopped
1-2T olive oil
salt and pepper
buttery spread or margarine, if desired

1) Steam cauliflower until mashable. You can’t over steam it, so when in doubt just let it sit.
2) Blend either in a food processor or blender, or mash by hand. Either way works fine.
3) Pour in olive oil, chives, salt and pepper. Whip with a fork.



I discovered my love of vegan cooking and all things food when I got my first kitchen during my sophomore year of college, so all of the recipes I share are designed to be made in a hurry and on a dime. Although I like to occasionally try adventurous and crazy new recipes, most of my cooking celebrates minimalism and uses five ingredients or less.
