Do you love the traditional mashed potatoes but know that it is not exactly a nutrient dense food? For years I avoided mashed potatoes because I knew that they added very little nutrition and provided over 26 grams of carbs, with very little fiber and protein. Potatoes are also part of the nightshade family and has a plant chemical called Solanine that may cause an Immune reaction in the gut. These Mashed “No-tatoes” are made with cauliflower and offer a great alternative to the traditional mashed potatoes. Bon Appetit!
This recipe serves 4 people.
Cut up the flowerettes from an organic head of Cauliflower.
Steam until it is slightly soft, but still has a little texture to it.
Put the steamed cauliflower into a food processor.
Add 1-2 Tbsp or Organic butter
For added flavor you can also add a few Tbs of Organic sour cream
Salt with Himalayan Crystal Salts and sprinkle with organic peppers.
Blend until smooth and serve.
In this recipe I have served it with my French Canadian “Coq au Vin”…recipe coming next week.
Thanks Dr. V. I use cauliflower to make “rice”. I put the cauliflower flowerettes through the ricer and then add some butter and a little thyme.
