Don't leave those leftovers in the dust

Remember that Bang Bang Shrimp I posted the other day?
Well, after all my shrimps were tossed in the delicious sauce, I still had quite a bit left over. 
So I put it in the fridge to save for later.
 The following day I used it with veggies as a side dish!
 It was super easy and tasty!

I steamed a head of cauliflower and then ran it through my food processor ( a ricer works too) and turned it into mashed "potatoes". 
Then I mixed in my leftover sauce and BOOM. 
Spicy Cauliflower mash!
Good flavors, good for you, and filling! 
Mashed cauliflower is a great starch substitute if you are looking for one and the spicy sauce is a bit healthier than the cheesy Velveeta mess that people like to dump on their veggies. 
This would be great mixed in with other goodies inside some stuffed peppers too!

Try it!

That sounds so yummy! I love the idea of replacing mashed potatoes with cauliflower.

Have you done cauli rice? A fave for me when you make something saucy!

I have not! But I would think this is pretty similar to it?
