Baked Mashed Cauliflower
1 medium to large cauliflower
Zero fat yogurt as needed
Salt & pepper
Break the cauliflower into small florets and steam until soft and tender.
Put the cauliflower, salt and pepper in a blender and blend until smooth, adding a little yogurt as needed to get the consistency of mashed potato.
Scoop the mixture into an oven proof dish and sprinkle with paprika.
Bake in a hot oven.  I grilled it at the end for a few minutes, until the top browned slightly.
