Mashed Cauliflower and Pretzel Bread Loaf

Yesterday morning I woke up early enough to hit the downtown Sunday Farmer’s Market under the freeway before the big crowds arrived.

It was so relaxing perusing all the goods in the early morning quiet.

Two things I got were a giant head of cauliflower, and a fresh, crisp loaf of German Pretzel Bread.

When I got home, I just trimmed and cut the cauliflower into florets, steamed them, and pureed them with a little vegan cream cheese, nutritional yeast, olive oil and sea salt in the food processor.

Together with a couple of slices of  pretzel bread, it made a tasty little Sunday morning meal.

Good way to get the kids to eat some veggies too.
