[RECIPE] Apple Chicken with Garlic Cauliflower Mash

I finally got a blender, which means I can start having mashed cauliflower! I used to mash it with a “regular” potato masher… unfortunately, it didn’t mash the cauliflower enough (for my taste) and I was stuck with a really grainy blob that didn’t resemble potatoes (- or cauliflower, for that matter!) at all!

But today, I got a big box in the mail from Amazon…

Yup, it’s my blender! I was so excited I immediately put it together, hooked it up, and started boiling water for my cauliflower. I decided to pair it with a nice and easy Apple Chicken – a simple, yet elegant flavor combination.

Needless to say, blending the cauliflower really took care of my issue with the texture – it was so good, I even had seconds… okay, thirds. Didn’t even have any left for lunch the next day. The man loved it, too!

I hope you enjoy this simple paleo dinner idea. Let me know how it turns out!
