Broccoli & Cauliflower Mash — Day 4 of March detox!

Homemade!

This is the first thing I’ve made from scratch in a long, long time:  Broccoli and cauliflower mash for the fourth day of my 7-day detox!  Woohoo! :O)  We’re more than halfway through the detox now and I honestly don’t feel that starved or deprived of food.  Of course, when I opened my cabinet this morning to find some cutlery, I noticed the stock of ready-to-make instant noodles and other miscellaneous food items that I could have dove into, but I’m used to the idea of eating just veggies/fruit now. 🙂

Recipe for making broccoli and cauliflower mash:

  •  1 cauliflower
  •  1 broccoli
  •  half an onion
  •  garlic (optional — I didn’t have any at home unfortunately)
  •  salt and pepper
  1. Wash and boil cauliflower, broccoli, and onion until just about soft.
  2. Drain water and let sit in pot for 10 minutes to let moisture to absorb back into cauliflower and broccoli.
  3. Use a potato masher or a blender to blend items until smooth.
  4. Add salt and pepper.
  5. Scoop into a pan into oven for baking.
  6. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes.
  7. Done!  You can add garnish or top with more pepper if desired.
  8. Eat and enjoy! 🙂

**If you are not on a detox, you can add butter and/or cheese to this recipe!  It will only make your dish more creamy and delicious.

Hahaha, and wow, there goes my very first recipe on stenoodie.com.  I hope you guys enjoy this!  I had some stir-fry veggies last night that were very tasty and filling too.  When you eat a rainbow of veggies and fruits every day, you are ensuring that your colon is healthy and happy! 🙂

Other than feeling a little sleepy in the afternoons, the detox has been going well!  There are only 3 days left.  See you in tomorrow’s blog post. :O)
