Creamy Mashed Cauliflower | Tastes Just Like Mashed Potato! | Low Carb

Merry Christmas everyone!!


I hope you are all having a lovely time with your family and friends! 🙂


We had our Christmas supper on Christmas Eve this year, a first for our family (we usually do Christmas day). And now we’re watching a Christmas movie together as we digest all the delicious food… mmmm. So I’m blogging (I am incapable of doing only one thing at a time! Lol).


Today’s healthy recipe:


CREAMY MASHED POTATOES CAULIFLOWER!


I don’t like white potatoes, but my dad does and requested mashed potatoes to go with our turkey supper tonight. And I have to admit creamy, buttery mashed potatoes sure do taste good mixed with gravy and cranberry sauce on a moist bite of roast turkey…! But white potatoes are high in starch (complex carbohydrate) and as a result give a high glycemic load and insulin spike. That’s why this recipe is so amazing…. it tastes IDENTICAL (even my potato-loving father loved it!) to mashed potatoes, but it is low carb and low calorie.


Carbohydrate content:

Cauliflower: 4.11g per 100g serving

White potato: 20.01g per 100g serving

INGREDIENTS:

 

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp butter

DIRECTIONS:

  • Wash and dry cauliflower. Chop roughly into large chunks.
  • Steam until tender.
  • Remove from steamer and allow steam to evaporate to minimize the liquid on the cauliflower (otherwise the mash will be runny).
  • Place all ingredients in food processor and process on high until completely smooth.
