Mashed Cauliflower

I recently made mashed cauliflower to go with the crock pot pepper steak that I made and it turned out really well! It tastes shockingly like mashed potatoes, making it a great low-carb alternative when you’re in the mood for some comfort food.

Making it was easy. To begin, steam some cauliflower until it breaks apart easily with a fork. I used two small bags of pre-cut cauliflower florets because I couldn’t find regular cauliflower in the store, which made this part even easier. Put the cauliflower in a food processor like this:

Then, add a generous splash of milk, a tablespoon or so of butter, a generous amount of garlic pepper, a little bit of salt, and about half a tablespoon of cream cheese (optional). Then, all that you have to do is puree all of the ingredients in the food processor until you have mashed cauliflower!

Pretty easy, right? Give it a shot sometime if you’re looking for something different. It tastes really good (even if you aren’t trying to eat fewer carbs) and has a consistency that is very similar to that of mashed potatoes (although not quite as fluffy). What a great way to sneak some extra vegetables into your diet…
