My husband has really been watching what he’s been eating lately + I’ve been reading a book called “Wheat Belly” = we’ve been evaluating the food we typically eat.
I never really put much thought into potatoes being mostly all carbs and not having much nutritional value – I just thought of them as a vegetable. I grew up eating my mom’s mashed potatoes several times a week and absolutely loved them!
The other night my hubby stopped by the grocery store to pick up a couple of things I needed and he brought home a head of cauliflower – GAG! I reallllly am not a fan of cauliflower. My mom used to mix it in with broccoli and serve it with melted Velveta cheese…and even then I still couldn’t stand it. However, my husband suggested making the cauliflower into mashed potatoes. So I did! I made them exactly how I make regular mashed potatoes and OH MY GOSH were they delicious!!! I seriously loved them! My hubby loved them…and our kids LOVED them! They even asked for seconds! Whaaaat?!?!?! Yes! I’m being serious!
Here’s how I made them!
Boil water in a large pot. Once boiling, add cauliflower.
Drain cauliflower from water, add butter, a splash of milk and mix with electric beater. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Ta da!! And there you have it! Enjoy!
