How to Make Creamy Riced Potatoes


  • 2 large red bell peppers
  • 1 ounce spicy chorizo, minced
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon water
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 large carrots, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 head of cauliflower (2 pounds), florets sliced 1/3 inch thick
  • Cilantro leaves, for garnish

How to make this recipe

  1. Roast the bell peppers directly over a gas flame or under the broiler until charred all over. Transfer to a plate to cool. Peel, core and seed the peppers, then coarsely chop them.

  2. In a small skillet, cook the chorizo over moderate heat until crisp, about 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

  3. In a mini food processor, puree the roasted peppers with the almond butter, garlic, cumin and the 1 tablespoon of water. Scrape the sauce into a bowl and season with salt and pepper.

  4. In a large skillet, cover the carrots with 1/2 cup of the water and add a pinch of salt. Cover and cook over moderate heat for 5 minutes. Add the sliced cauliflower and the remaining 1/2 cup of water, cover and cook until just tender, about 5 minutes longer; drain.

  5. Transfer the vegetables to a platter and drizzle with some of the almond sauce. Top with the chorizo and cilantro and serve with the extra sauce.
