i'm still learning my way around the kitchen, so like many of my recipes, today's recipe originated from a blog i admire. it was roost blog that initially inspired me to start trying healthy eating recipes, but really the blog is so much more. and the photographs - just gorgeous! i pinned coco's truffled cauliflower mash a while back, but finally tried it on superbowl sunday.
while truffle oil sounds delightful, i didn't have any on hand, so i adjusted the recipe a bit. the original recipe calls for thyme, but fresh rosemary is one of my favorites, so i had to add it. and the chives give it a bit of a kick.
one other change you might notice: my recipe below calls for yellow onion. i used red this past weekend and while it works, i think yellow onion will be a better complement to the chives. if you try it out, let me know!
