I love mashed potatoes. Love love love love them. Heck, I’m so in love with mashed potatoes that I would marry them if it were legal in this state.
Hi, I’m Mrs. Mashed Potatoes. How are you doing today?
Unfortunately, like many foods that I love, mashed potatoes are not very health conscious. Especially after I add loads of butter, heavy cream, cheese and sometimes bacon to them (yum). These Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes have the same smooth texture as mashed potatoes and the taste is so spot on that it’s close enough to make low carb dieters or Paleo dieters happy.
Plus you can eat seconds without feeling guilty. I like that.
I prepared these “potatoes” in a food processor. If you prefer chunkier “potatoes” simply mash the cauliflower with a potato masher and fold in the ingredients instead. Top with chives (or whatever you like putting on your taters) and you’ve got an all-star side dish.
