This vegan side dish is loaded with vegetables and fruit, and is an amazing alternative to starch heavy mashed potatoes.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium cauliflower head, roughly chopped
  • 2 Gala apples, roughly chopped
  • 2 large shallots, roughly chopped
  • 1 T. fresh rosemary leaves, minced
  • ¼ c. extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 lbs. Brussels sprouts, washed, trimmed, and halved
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 c. fresh cherries, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 3 T. almond milk
  • ½ c. pistachios, shelled and roughly chopped

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 375°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a baking mat. Set aside.

2

Add the cauliflower, apple, shallots, rosemary leaves, and one tablespoon olive oil to a large bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and toss to combine.

3

Spread the cauliflower mixture into a uniform single layer onto the prepared baking sheet and place in the pre-heated oven to roast until the cauliflower is fork tender, approximately 25-30 minutes.

4

Meanwhile, heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large, high-sided skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until it becomes fragrant, approximately 30 seconds.

5

Add the Brussels sprouts and cook, stirring only occasionally, until they become golden brown and crispy, approximately 15-20 minutes. Add the fresh cherries and cook, stirring frequently, until just heated through, approximately 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

6

Once the cauliflower is done, transfer the roasted veggies on the baking sheet to a large mixing bowl. Add almond milk and remaining olive oil. season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and mash with a potato masher or blend with an immersion blender until mostly smooth. Set aside.

7

Spread the warm cauliflower and apple mash on the bottom of a large serving dish or bowl. Top with the crispy Brussels sprouts, warm cherries, and chopped pistachios before serving. Enjoy!
