Faux Mashed Potatoes (Cauliflower)
Here's a great low-carb recipe for fake mashed potatoes, using cauliflower. You just cut up the cauliflower, boil it, then mash it. You can add any of these ingredients to your liking: cream cheese, half and half, sour cream or butter as you would to mashed potatoes. For a healthier version, you can use the reduced fat version of those dairy products.
1 head of cauliflower cut into florets
2 oz. cream cheese
3 T butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Bring a large pot of water to boiling. Add a dash of salt. Add the cauliflower and cook until completely done. Drain. In a food processor or blender, add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Serve as you would mashed potatoes. Makes a great side dish.
