Great work tonight. We worked on squat cleans to open up then went into a triplet finisher of:
Solid work all around. It’s really great to start and introduce some of the new folks into the fold. Jeremy got his first workout tonight and did great. It will be awesome to have this beast unleashed in a few short weeks.
Onto the grub! You like mashed potatoes? Who doesn’t we are in the Midwest after all…tonight Trappy is gonna hook up with a great Paleo substitute.
Cauliflower and Leek purée
2 heads of cauliflower
3 leeks (white to light green parts only) (Editor’s note: your redneck ass doesn’t know what a leek is? Even more reason to go buy some and try it out!)
2 tbls organic butter
2 tbls almond milk
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Remove the core of the cauliflower and discard.Cut the rest of the cauliflower into 2 inch pieces.
Steam for about 10-12 minutes on medium high heat.
Cut the leeks into 1 inch pieces and sauté in butter for 10 minutes on medium heat.
Combine the cauliflower, leeks and almond milk in a food processor, it may take 2 loads.
Process together and put in a sauce pan and season with salt and pepper.
Keep heated on low until your main dish is ready.
This is a perfect substitution for mashed potatoes! Throw a grilled/baked piece of protein and another side of veggies and you’re good to go!
