Cauliflower-Broccoli Mash

This past weekend, I was gabbing on the phone with my sister-in-law and she asked me what she should do with all this cauliflower she had at home. She, like my parents, are members of a co-op where they receive a weekly basket of organic and local produce. (I am so jealous — wish I could do it here in NYC.  But because I am on the west coast all summer and very few programs do partial shares, I do not do it. If anyone knows of a CSA – Community Supported Agriculture – in NYC that offers partial seasons, let me know! I am definitely interested). In any case, when you participate in programs with baskets of vegetables, you never know what you are getting. So, this past week, my brother’s family had a huge load of cauliflower to deal with.

I knew exactly what Katie and her family should make…Cauliflower-Broccoli mash! I used to make it all the time, but for some reason, it has been years since I last made it. So I was excited to make it again this week! And yes….for some reason, all my recipes (1) end up green (2) are mashed (3) require a vitamix…not sure what that is all about….
