CAULIFLOWER MASH HEALTHY EATING
The other morning I posted my shake that I had for breakfast. Someone commented, asking me what I was eating for lunch.
Hmmmm. I had no idea. I have been wanting some cauliflower mash, which is why I bought one a few days ago. I kinda wanted spinach, because I have been wearing cabbage out, I love it so.
So I told her cauliflower mash with spinach, but I didn’t know what protein or meat I was going to cook.
A few weeks ago, omg guys, I sautéed some shrimp and it was the best shrimp I had ever made. I don’t know what I did but I seasoned it and cooked it perfectly.
I think I just paid more attention. Because many times I’ll put food on and go back into my room or my office, start writing or researching or whatever and Yes you guessed it, I forget. LOL!
I didn’t forget then, and it was perfection. I believe it was sautéed cabbage and shrimp!!!! Yummy!
Ok, ok, back to today’s lunch. LOL! I decided on shrimp because I ate fish and steak last week and I've been thinking about some shrimp I made from a few weeks ago, made me crave it.
So that's what I decided on sautéed shrimp, cauliflower mash, and spinach. And I had this great drink, well water, LOL. I added some powered version of an antioxidant juice that’s part of my healthy living product line.
It’s so good! You are going to love this. Well, hopefully. :-)
Don’t you hate when you cook and you look at the kitchen and yuck, you have so much to clean? Of course you do. I try to clean as I go or right after I fix my plate I take 2 minutes to wash the pans etc otherwise dishes will stack up and who knows when I’ll do it.
The more dishes I see the lazier I get. Does that happen to you, or just me?
Any who, I cooked the whole meal in the same pot. Not at the same time. It probably took me 20 minutes to cook this meal. Who doesn't Love Quick?!
Now I can’t remember what time I started, I wish I did, so I could be more exact. So the first thing I had to do was soften the cauliflower. I put a little water in the pot. I actually seasoned the water.
I put the whole cauliflower in, after I had cut off excess stems etc. I covered it and walked away.
Here’s a picture. That's the shrimp thawing out in the red bowl to the left.
I wish I knew how long I let it steam, maybe 10-20 minutes, I’m just not sure. I checked it and it was sooooo soft. Yeay!
After that was done, I put it in a bowl and mashed it, just like you’d do potatoes, put to the side. Well actually I mashed it while the shrimp was cooking.
I had shrimp with the shell on. I put them in water to thaw. It was taking longer than I wanted so I put in microwave about 1-2 minutes. I peeled them and placed them on a paper towel, for excess water.
ONE POT COOKING
I didn’t clean the pot. I added a little olive oil some seasoning to the oil and placed each shrimp in the pot. Below are pictures.
That may have taken 10 minutes. I turned them over while cooking. I took them out put on a plate and then I put fresh spinach in the same pot. Below is a picture.
The spinach may have taken less than 5 minutes. I put it on the plate. Dabbed excess oil, added the cauliflower. What a great meal!
I can’t forget my drink. It has over 22 different super fruit juices, plus aloe vera, so it also helps with inflammation; which I can always use because of my back issues.
Final result. Yummy!
II used a little Mediterranean salt. You can see the bottle in the picture, it’s a grinder. was actually too full to finish it. That's a lot of shrimp, so I saved few to snack on later. I still have plenty of cauliflower mash left. The meal was delicious.
If you decide to try this meal, please let me know what you thought. Season it to your own tastes. Make sure you dab any excess oil.
