I made cauliflower / sweet potato mash last week and that ended up being a really nice combination (one head of cauliflower and 5 sweet potatoes was all I had left in the fridge...) . I boiled them together, mashed them and added a few spoons of cream and some garlic and pepper I think.

Yum! I can definitely see how the sweetness of the sweet potatoes would pair well!

My nephew tried it said he couldn't taste the spinach at all! Score!

Have you tried mashed cauliflower before? It's so good, a healthier take on mashed potatoes but surprisingly delicious. I kicked the nutrients up a little more with this batch and added a bunch of spinach. You can't really taste the spinach but you get those extra vitamins and a pretty color!



I'm currently doing keto, a kind of low carb diet, and this is a good potato/starch substitute.

Ingredients

1 large head cauliflower, roughly cut up into florets
5 ounces raw baby spinach (half a bag if you buy regular sized bags Wink )
2 ounces cream cheese
2 Tablespoons butter
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon vegetable bouillon powder or paste (or salt to taste)
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic or garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or to taste)
2 Tablespoons dried chives

Add the cauliflower to a large pot of boiling, salted water. Test occasionally with a fork or knife, you will want it completely tender (maybe 8-10 minutes depending on the size of your florets). 30 seconds before you're ready to take it out, add the spinach. Drain the cauliflower and spinach well and transfer to a large food processor. Process until smooth, add the rest of the ingredients, and process until well mixed. Taste and adjust seasonings. You can easily leave the butter out of this recipe if you like, the Parmesan and cream cheese add a lot of flavor.

Makes 6 servings
Nutrition information per serving: 187 calories, 6 g protein, 15 g fat, 9 g carbs, 4 g fiber
Approx 35 fewer calories/4 g fat per serving if you leave out the butter

This is good with any kind of protein and I also serve it sometimes with a Garlic Cream Sauce.

June 20 Check In

So I don't really know what a blender fabric is as I have never heard the term before. So I guess I don't really have a favorite. Honestly when I am planning a quilt, I just find fabric I like. I don't really have a particular style or go to for fabrics (at least I don't think I do).

Not that I'm trained at all (self-taught, yo!) but traditional quilting theory seems to be usually taught to start with a focus fabric (maybe a busier print) and then mix in some "blender" fabrics made up of colors within that focus fabric to complement the focus fabric. I quilt that way sometimes, but lots of "modern" quilting seems to just use a lot of what would be considered blender fabrics, but I think it maybe just goes back to a simpler aesthetic?
