How to make it
- Place everything in a 1 quart Calphalon pot and season with salt and white pepper.

- Put cauliflower and potato mix in food processor. Reserve any cream that was not absorbed by the vegetables (in my case, there was none).
- Puree. Add cream left over, if needed. Continue pureeing until smooth. Season with more salt and pepper, if needed. Return to pot and keep warm while you grill the filets.
- Melt butter in small saucepan. Add black pepper, chopped parsley, garlic, and lemon juice.
- Season beef tenderloin filet generously with salt . Tie with butcher string to keep it's shape. Brush butter mixture on both side of each filet.
- Grill on each side on a charcoal grill for about 20 minutes total, or until internal temp is 130 degrees. Brush again with left over butter mixture, lightly tent with foil and let rest for 10-15 minutes.
- To plate:
- Spoon cauliflower puree in middle of plate. Slice beef and fan over puree. Sprinkle with minced parsley.

Luisa, this looks beautiful and has my mouth watering for the cauliflower puree. I think you are right about the herbs and puree going well with a firm fish and I would add a green vegey side dish and a pinot...Oh, I'm getting carried away! Thanks f...moreangelinaw in St Louis loved it
