In the south mashed potatoes are a big deal. The butter, the salt - it all gets in the way when you're trying to eat clean. I'll let you in on a secret though, there's a health alternative out there and it is... cauliflower!
You may not believe me until you try it but they really do taste like mashed potatoes! Personally I am not a fan of raw or even cooked cauliflower, but when it is made into ‘mashed potatoes’ I love it. I feel so much better when I eat this version too versus white potatoes where I get bloated and tired after eating them.
All you need is one head of cauliflower, a little butter or coconut oil, and some sea salt and pepper.
First, steam the cauliflower for about 15 minutes and then cut off the stems. Put the steamed cauliflower in a blender or Ninja and blend right up! You can even mash them in a bowl like you would potatoes. Then add a few tablespoons of butter or coconut oil as well as sea salt and pepper.
Add some chives or some other healthy toppings. It is yours to customize!
