Faux mashed potatoes, made with smoke and mirrors

Back in January, I visited the Saturday Morning Market in St. Pete and bought this small container of smoked sea salt. My mission was to dress up the celery root puree soup I was making. If you'd like the recipe, it's in my recipe archive. Just click on the rooster on the right side of this page.

Smoked sea salt is also a delicious way to add flavor to faux mashed potatoes. After steaming a head of cauliflower in the microwave, I throw it in my blender, whirling until the contents resemble mashed potatoes.

Then I lightly sprinkle the smoked sea salt on top, which adds a very mild, but distinct flavor.

Smoked sea salt can also be found on the shelves of most grocery stores or gourmet food shops.
