Mashed Cauliflower with Greek Yogurt

Mashed cauliflower is something I attempted once last winter. It came out terribly, I added way too much veggie stock, and I just did not like it. I even remember running to my corner market to grab a single serving of Greek yogurt, but even that didn’t save the dish! A year later I’m a much wiser cook, so I decided to change up my approach. I’ve recently been obsessed with roasted garlic, so I thought I’d bring a couple of cloves to the party. I also boiled and drained the cauliflower in water and I didn’t go so heavy-handed with the stock, so I only ended up using a few tablespoons to get it to the consistency I wanted. The Greek Yogurt is the perfect way to turn this thing up a notch and really trick your guests into thinking they’re eating good old buttery mashed potatoes too. I had a co-worker taste test these the next day, and when I told her there was no butter, she about fell off her chair! Mmm I smell this healthy side dish making an appearance at your Thanksgiving table…
