Ruby Tuesday Creamy Mashed Cauliflower

This is the recipe for Ruby Tuesday Creamy Mashed Cauliflower

You might want to rethink before you order it - what's with the sugar and corn starch??!!

1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon corn starch
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder

1. Divide a head of cauliflower into florets that are all roughly the same size. Steam cauliflower pieces over boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender. Drain the cauliflower and toss it in a bowl of ice water to bring the cooking process to a screeching halt.
2. When the cauliflower has cooled, put the florets in a food processor along with 1/2 cup of water. Puree the cauliflower on high speed until smooth, but with some very small pieces of cauliflower remaining in the mix for just a bit of texture.
3. Pour all of the pureed cauliflower into a medium sauce pan. Dissolve the corn starch in the remaining 1/4 cup of water and add the solution to the cauliflower.
4. Add the cream, salt, white pepper, garlic powder and onion powder to the cauliflower and stir. Set the saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring often, for 5 to 10 minutes, or until thick. Makes three 3/4-cup servings.


Hmmmm!

Is that from Top Secret Recipes?

He's just trying to replicate the taste & texture... might or might not be in the actual cauliflower from Ruby Tuesdays... though I've always wondered why the net carbs are so high for it.

Yes, it's from Top Secret recipes.

You're right - even at Ruby Tuesdays the carb count seemed high.

Maybe it's the actual recipe!

The last time we ate there I ordered that and had an insulin reaction (my asthma kicks in and my back starts to hurt) so I bet its true! Evil!

I actually like Houlihan's better and no reaction. Theirs have cream cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon and ROASTED GARLIC! Yum!

Houlihans is another restaurant chain..
I know they're in the Midwest - but I don't know about Texas. Google their website - good luck!

I just had the cauliflower at Ruby Tuesday's a couple of nights ago. If it has sugar in it, that's a really lousy thing to do! If I wanted to eat sugar, I sure wouldn't eat it in that form!

By the way, their menu lists only "net carbs" so I checked their website. They subtract sugar alcohols as well as fiber. Good thing I said no when the server suggested low-carb cheesecake.

At least there's no cornstarch or sugar in it.

And why on earth would they need to add vegetable fiber?? Would that be AKA TVP, I wonder?

Sounds like they've used some sort of powdered mix (to make it easy to transport to all their chains) that needs to have the alcohol suspension to preserve it. The Onion puree is probably something the chains already use in their other products. And, of course, the combination of oils/ margarine is probably cheaper than butter, provides that "unique" flavor, and my guess, is mixed with the powder and cream, sort of like a mayonnaise.

Since I must avoid Soy due to allergies and thyroid, I'm really glad I have this information - I wonder if it's listed on their menu, or if their wait staff would even know about it?

Hmmm. We don't have RT's here, but I hear they are coming - some time. Maybe it's a good thing?
