Faux Potatoes

Fake potatoes, really?  Just give me the real thing, I know that's what you're thinking.  Heck, that's what I'm thinking.  However, you'd be surprised at the resemblance that cauliflower bears to potatoes.  With the addition of some herbs, this was a side dish worth going back for seconds.  Non-guilty seconds.  My favourite kind. 
What?  Dessert?  Sure don't mind if I do.  I was good today after all.  Chocolate, justified.

Mashed Cauliflower

1 head of cauliflower, florets cut into bit sized pieces
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp dried chives
1/2 tsp dried dill
1 tsp dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste

In steamer basket over boiling water place cut up florets.  Cover and steam until tender, approximately 15 minutes.
Transfer cooked cauliflower to food processor.  Add butter and yogurt.  Process until smooth.  Stir in herbs, salt and pepper.

Serves: 4
