Best of all, though, it is easy and quick to serve. I am trying to incorporate more videos into my blog.  Let me tell you, taking a video is a complicated business and I have a lot to learn.  One thing I have had to learn the hard way (I am still learning) is knowing what shots I will need when it comes time to edit.

Recipe with Great Flavor and a Kick.

I had to make this dish three times to get all the shots.  I would sit down to edit and think, crap I needed a shot in between cooking, and mashing.  For three days straight my hubby had this dish with dinner.  He didn’t complain once, actually said each time what a great dish it was.  I played with the amount of horseradish sauce to add.  If you are a big horseradish fan, go with freshly grated kind to get the most of the hot kick.  Adding in the sour cream, horseradish and chives and this recipe is packed with a great flavor and consistency.  I would recommend fresh chives over dry to add that great fresh onion.

Cauliflower is a Nutritional Powerhouse. 

Why choose Cauliflower?  Cauliflower contains vitamins and folate, two nutrients that are known for the immune system. Anti-oxidants such as vitamin E and beta carotene can keep your immune system in order to avoid heart disease, cancer, and cataracts.

Cauliflower is great for after workouts because it contains high amounts of vitamin K and omega-3 fatty acids, which help decrease inflammation.  Helping to shorten recovery time.  If you know you are going to have a hard workout or a long run, pick up a head of cauliflower and mash it up for dinner, knowing you are eating something loaded with everything your body needs to recover.

    we love cauliflower rice, but I have yet to try it mashed – I love the addition of horseradish for a bit of heat

    Cauliflower should be considered a super food. It is amazing. I love that you added horseradish. I’ve got some fresh in the fridge. It adds such delicious flavor.

      Oh Wow Melissa that is awesome. How do you keep the bugs from devouring? I am organic in my garden and always fight to keep my cauliflower to myself. Amy
