This is an old macrobiotic preparation, created because potatoes are a member of the nightshade family, and thus are prohibited in a macrobiotic diet. In today’s world, the poor potato is avoided for its carbohydrates, so try this whole-grain and vegetable puree instead. Adding restaurant-style flavors will jazz it up, as will butter or gravy.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup millet
  • 2½ cups water
  • 4 ounces sliced cauliflower stems and florets (about 1½ cups)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Butter, roasted garlic, wasabi, horseradish, and/or sour cream to taste (optional)

Instructions

Wash and drain the millet, then put it in a 1-quart saucepan with a lid. Add the water, cauliflower, and salt. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to the lowest simmer. Cover and cook for 35 minutes, checking and giving it a stir after 30 minutes. The millet will break open and thicken the liquid in the pot. When the millet is very soft and thick, take it off the heat and let stand for 5 minutes.

Use a blender for the smoothest puree, but a food processor will work almost as well. Puree until the mixture is as smooth as you can get it. Add butter or other flavorings, if desired, and serve in place of mashed potatoes.
