Tummy Tuesday : Cauliflower 'Mashed Potatoes'


So I have decided to cut way back on my carb intake lately... Both me and my fiance could stant to control our eating habits much more than we are currently... For me that means low-carb... So I am ditching the starches like rice, potatoes, pasta and bread until I can balance my diet a bit better.... My fiance being a Meat and Potatoes kinda guy is completely on board with uping our protein but will probably not do too well if I do not make an effort keep things 'normal' for him... my solution? Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes of course!

Ingredients
1 medium head of Cauliflower ~20oz
1/4 cup of Butter/Cream/Milk --> whatever you normally use to make mashed potatoes
Salt/Pepper/Garlic Powder to taste
Optional: 1/4 cup of low-carb instant potatoes to adjust texture

Preparation

1. Cook/Steam Cauliflower by whatever method you choose... Cauliflower is ready when it can be easily pierced by a fork.

2. Add additional ingredients as you so choose - blend together with a hand blender or in a food processor.
This is a pretty quick and easy alternative to real mashed potatoes.... If you add 1/4 cup of butter and cream and a clove of garlic, this recipe will yield roughly 4 servings with 188 calories and 4.3 net carbs each .... not too shabby!

  2. This is the only way we eat mashed veg with our dinners now! My kids adjusted quickly and my hubby hates plain mashed taters now. I do add a bit of instant mash potatoes to ours for the texture consistency. It makes me SO happy to be feeding my kids healthy cauliflower rather than just the starchy potato and they love it :)

    Oh and cauliflower here is extremely expensive so we often just use frozen cauliflower steamed for a few minutes before throwing it in the blender :)
