A nice mashed potato alternative

I tried this the other night and am now addicted.

Steam some broccoli until very tender
Mash well along with about an ounce of cream cheese and a few tbs grated strong cheddar.
Salt and pepper to taste

That's it!

I added some butter because it was a bit thick. I really loved it. I used a hand potato masher though I imagine pulsing in a food propcessor would work too.

The cauliflower one has been done before but I'm not a great cauliflower fan. Broccoli though - I could eat that forever!

Good idea on the spinach!

Thanks..this does look yummy and a nice alternative to cauliflower. Also, celery root is a wonderful sub for mashed potatoes..

Good idea. I wonder how it would taste if we mashed turnip and celery root together. Hmmm.

I think it would be wonderful, Lisa. Plus, celery root is rather
expensive, so it would stretch it a little.
