Cauliflower Quinoa Mash

Serves 4

1 cup Half and half

1 cup milk (we used 1%)

1 cup Quinoa

1/2 Large cauliflower, remove stem and cut head into small florets

¾ cup cut pancetta

2-3 Tbsp Just Jan’s Balsamic Onion Savory Spread

⅛ tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

Dash Paprika

Salt and Pepper to taste

Chives for garnish

 

Place quinoa, cauliflower, milk and ½ and ½ in a medium size pot over low heat.

Stir in salt & pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder and bring mixture to a low boil, then turn heat down to a simmer. Keep an eye on pot to make sure it doesn’t boil over.  Cook until quinoa is cooked through – soft, not mushy.

In a separate pan, sauté chopped pancetta cooking until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and let drain on a paper towel and set aside.

Finely chop chives and set aside in small bowl.

Using a potato masher, mash the cooked quinoa and cauliflower until fully combined.

Fold in Balsamic onion spread and chopped chives.

Place mixture in dish and sprinkle with pancetta and serve.
