Mashed Cauliflower Recipe!
If you are a mashed potato lover but are trying to cut out starch, give mashed cauliflower a try! I won’t lie, it doesn’t taste exactly like mashed potatoes. However, it is a pretty good substitute.
Mashed Cauliflower Recipe
1 Head Cauliflower 1 Clove Garlic, pressed 1 Tablespoon Butter 2 Tablespoons Milk (more or less) 1 oz. Non-Fat Cream Cheese Salt and pepper to taste Cut the head of cauliflower to detach the florets. Place the cauliflower and garlic in a steam pot or microwave safe dish. Steam the cauliflower florets until soft. I steamed them in the microwave for about 8-9 minutes. Use a potato masher to break up the cauliflower florets. Add butter and milk. I used a hand blender to mix the cauliflower and make it smooth. Add in the non-fat cream cheese, salt and pepper. Mix until smooth.
- If you’re apprehensive about trying just cauliflower, mix in some mashed potatoes.
- Steaming is better than boiling the cauliflower. Boiling vegetables takes some of the nutrients out.
- Mashed Cauliflower would be wonderful served with the meatloaf muffins!
