edible atx

I'm sort of loving this magazine that I stumbled upon while perusing the wares at the flagship Whole Foods here in Austin.  Edible Austin: the designer in me loves it's aesthetic, heavyweight matte paper, and arty photos, & spreads.  Check it!

avocado chocolate mousse

  • 1 ripe avocado, skin and pit removed
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons honey
  1. Place avocado and dark chocolate cocoa powder in food processor. Add honey.
  2. Process avocado, cocoa powder and honey for approximately one minute, pausing to scrape the sides, or until a thick, smooth mousse forms
  3. Spoon mousse into a small bowl, top with slivered almonds, fresh fruit or chocolate chips and enjoy

cauli mash

I want to call these mock-mashed potatoes, but I don't think that name gives this dish justice, but neither does pureed cauliflower....mashed cauliflower seems to be fitting.  I've been experimenting with different versions and have settled on my fave.  This is my low-fat version, and honestly I was surprised, it's just as tasty as the full fat cream & cheddar version.

Low-Fat Mashed Cauliflower (2 servings, ww+ points = 1)
1/2 head of cauliflower
1 T fat free milk
1 t powdered butter substitute (Molly McButter or similar)
1 slice fat free sharp cheddar cheese singles
1 T powdered white cheddar popcorn seasoning
salt & pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS: Cut cauliflower into approx. 2" pieces.  Place in microwave safe covered bowl w/ milk.  Microwave for 10 min, stirring every few.  Remove cauliflower mixture & transfer to blender or food processor.  Add cheese, butter substitute, white cheddar seasoning, salt, & pepper.  Blend/process until smooth.  You may need to add a little more milk to reach desired consistency.
