DK’s Lower Carb Mashed Cauli‘taters

DK's Mashed Cauli'taters

DK’s Mashed Cauli’taters

As the nights start to get cooler one thing I always crave is mashed potatoes.  Overall mashed potatoes aren’t a bad choice, but they can add a significant amount of carbohydrates and fat.  This blend of potatoes and cauliflower is meant to be family friendly and there is a good chance, they might not even notice the healthy swaps.  Even better, you can cut the amount of carbs in half, while not sacrificing taste or texture.

Serves:  4-6

Ingredients:

  • 1 Head cauliflower
  • 2 Large white (russet) potatoes
  • 2 T Unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 T Brewers yeast (optional)
  • 1/2 t Minced garlic
  • 1/8 t Vegetable or chicken bouillon dissolved in a small amount of warm water (may substitute 1/2 teaspoon salt)
  • 1/2 t Fresh or dry chives, chopped for garnish
  • 3 T Ghee or vegan butter
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil over high heat.
  2. Clean and cut cauliflower and peeled potatoes into small, similar sized pieces. Cook in boiling water for about 6-10 minutes, or until well done. Drain well and while still hot transfer to mixing bowl.
  3. In a bowl with an immersion blender, or in a food processor, puree the hot cauliflower and potatoes with all ingredients and blend until smooth.  Do not over blend or they become rubbery.
  4. Garnish with chives, and serve hot with pats of vegan butter or ghee.
