These are so simple and delicious. I'm sorry that I rejected the idea of faux-tatoes years ago. There was a young man at my job and he and his wife were doing the Atkins Diet. He told me about how good the faux-tatoes were, but I couldn't believe it. I thought to myself how I would NEVER give up mashed potatoes.

And now here we are in TWENTY-TEN.   How things change.

Now that I am not eating potatoes, whipped cauliflower has become my new favorite comfort food.

Here's how to make it.

2 small heads of cauliflower, broken into small pieces

Steam until tender. It is best to use a steamer basket so that the cauliflower is not resting in the water while it cooks.   It takes 15-20 minutes until the cauliflower is fork tender.   Pour the cauliflower into a colander to drain any water.

Put the cauliflower back into the pan and add in some butter or ghee, or your favorite healthy fat. Add salt and pepper and hit with a stick blender. The more you blend, the fluffier the cauliflower will get.
