I don’t have much in the habit of eating mashed potatoes, but this time, I wanted to cook mashed cauliflower. They are well represented on the stalls of the markets, so if you want, you will be able to do as much as you want. This is not a vegetable I cook very often and yet it is delicious, especially gratin. Oh, there’s also an idea for a next recipe based on cauliflower…
You can also add to this recipe of mashed potatoes, a potato, a bit of broccoli or a carrot to give a nice colour…

For the tip grandmother for the recipe, I put a sage leaf at the time of the cooking of the cauliflower, it seems that it makes it easier to digest. I do it as soon as I cook cabbage (including brussel sprouts) and I have to say that I have the impression that it function…
