I’m a quarter Irish and ashamed to say I have yet to make, or even taste, cornbeef and cabbage. It is on my bucket list to make one St. Patrick’s Day! Unfortunately, with a move coming up, packing boxes will be a priority over good ol’ Irish cooking. So, once again I say, next year it will happen. What’s your favorite Irish dish or St. Patrick’s Day tradition??
Cauliflower is practically the chameleon of food. It can be used in place of rice, mashed potatoes, pizza crust.. Endless opportunities! It’s a life saver when it comes to reducing calories and carbs in your diet. And I am always a fan of cutting calories, solely for the fact that it means I can enjoy more food. Mashed Cauliflower is a fantastic substitute for mashed potatoes. You can pair this tasty dish with grilled chicken, ground turkey (pictured), shrimp, salmon, steak, and so much more. You just gotta go with your heart on this one.
Little did I realize when I first tried this recipe that it would turn green… Yes, green, as you can see. I guess I should have realized that blending green spinach with white cauliflower would result in an unusual “mashed potato” color.. duhh. Well, lucky for me, St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and green food is always accepted on St. Patrick’s Day. Now pour yourself some green beer and get to cookin’!
