How To Make the Creamiest Mashed Cauliflower

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cups water
1 teaspoon kosher salt

Equipment
Chef’s knife
Cutting board
Measuring cup and spoons
4-quart saucepan
Spatula or wooden spoon
Colander
Immersion blender

Instructions

  1. Finely chop the cauliflower (for whole cauliflower only). Halve the cauliflower through the stem. Cut a “V” shape around the core to remove the core from each half. Finely chop the cauliflower. The smaller the pieces, the faster the cauliflower will cook and the creamier the finished dish will be.
  2. Sauté the cauliflower. Melt the butter in a 4-quart pot over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower and sauté, stirring regularly, until the cauliflower has lightened in color, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Boil until tender. Add the water and salt and bring to a boil. Cover and cook until the cauliflower is tender, about 10 minutes.
  4. Reserve the cooking liquid, then drain. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. Drain the cauliflower.
  5. Mash or purée. Place the drained cauliflower and reserved cooking liquid back in the pot. Blend using an immersion blender to desired consistency. Serve hot.

Lyssa joined the ABC 36 team in 2017 as Co-Host on Midday Kentucky, but she has been a part of the extended ABC 36 family for years… as the wife of Doug High, ABC 36 Anchor! Lyssa is now the host of ABC 36 Hometown Tours which features different places to eat, shop, and explore through out Central Kentucky! Hometown Tours airs every month on Good Day Kentucky, but you will still see Lyssa on Midday from time to time when she co-hosts the show. Originally from the small town of Willard in Northwest Ohio, Lyssa graduated from Kent State University with a Theatre degree. She and Doug moved to Lexington in 2000 following her spending 3 years in Nashville, pursuing a singer / songwriter career. A 12-year run in pharmaceutical sales came next, along with a family… two sons, Jackson (12) and Harrison (8). Lyssa has amassed a diverse on camera TV resume. She was the on camera commercial spokesperson for Legacy Nissan for several years and hosted a local car sales program for them. Corporate and commercial work for clients such as Sam’s Club…. Lyssa has acted in a Star Wars fan film, been a Disney paid extra in the major motion picture Secretariat (Don’t blink! She’s in the yellow dress in the stands at Keeneland) and most recently appeared in Doug Highs KET / PBS documentary on Lexington’s notorious Victorian era Madame, Belle Brezing. She has even appeared as a contestant on The Price is Right! (Yes, she did kiss Bob Barker, but do NOT bring up the Showcase Showdown!) Lyssa loves living in Lexington with her family and is a diehard Kentucky Wildcats basketball fan. She strongly believes in community service and after 9/11 the High’s responded: Doug joined the U.S. Navy Reserve and Lyssa trained the family Labador as an auxiliary Search and Rescue Dog, assisting Scott County Emergency Management for nearly 10 years. She brings to Midday Kentucky an often-missing and important perspective in the daytime local TV – Talk landscape, as a 40-something married, working mother.
