Joila! It’s such an easy recipe, and so much healthier than your traditional mashed potatoes. Cauliflower is high in Vitamin C, folate, (which is essentil for pregnant women!) vitamin K, and protein, and a number of other vitamins.
Caulflower mashed potatoes make a great, healthy, and versatile side dish any time of year, including Thanksgiving dinner.
Personally, like this potato / cauliflower hybrid recipe, as you stay closer to the taste of real mashed potatoes. Mashed cauliflower alond is still good, but your kids might not eat it, and you don’t get as good of a consistency!
Cauliflower mashed potatoes are great served with balsamic roasted vegetables, or try them with grilled balsamic mustard glazed steak or shrimp with spicy tomato sauce.
Plus, Oprah recommends them, so you can’t get a better endorsement!
