Keep your favorite high carb side in your low carb diet with this Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes recipe! Made with simple ingredients, super easy to make, and guaranteed to satisfy.
The first thing you need to do is to cook your cauliflower. Whether you use fresh or frozen is completely up to you, today I’m using fresh and preparing on the stovetop.
To cook your fresh cauliflower on the stovetop all you need to do is boil it until it starts to split with a fork. Make sure to remove your cauliflower leaves beforehand.
Drain your cauliflower once it’s done boiling and place it into either a food processor or really powerful blender. If you don’t have a food processor, here’s a link to the one we’ve been using for years and recommend.
You change up the flavor of these cauliflower mashed potatoes by simply adding in other herbs, spices, or seasonings to them.
However much cauliflower you make it completely up to you, I used a large head (around 600g) today.
Continue by adding into your food processor 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper, 1 ounce of fat free milk, 2 tablespoons of parsley, and 3 cloves of garlic or 1 1/2 teaspoons of minced garlic.
Process or blend everything together until it looks like your cauliflower mashed potatoes.
Last, add and process in 1 tablespoon of butter or butter substitute.
That’s it, you’re done! Pair these with your favorite protein, vegetables, and so on.
