Mashed Cauliflower with Caramelized Fennel
2 heads cauliflower
2-3 tbs. butter
2 bulbs fennel, chopped (fronds reserved)
2 tbs. olive oil
2 tbs. Greek yogurt
4 tbs. fresh chives, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400°. Cut one the heads of cauliflower into florets, toss with 1 tbs. olive oil, salt, and pepper place on a baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Fill a large pot with 1 inch of salted water and place the other head of cauliflower in the pot, covered. Simmer the cauliflower until tender. Once tender drain and add the 2-3 tbs. of butter and mash like potatoes. Add in the Greek yogurt, salt and pepper and mix well.
In a medium sauté pan heat 1tbs. olive oil, on medium-high, sauté until caramelized about 6-8 minutes. Add the caramelized fennel to the mashed cauliflower mixture. Mix in the chopped chives and chopped fennel fronds, reserving a few for garnish. Place the roasted cauliflower over the mashed cauliflower and add the reserved chives and fennel fronds on top. Enjoy
