Love mashed potatoes but watching your carbs? This cauliflower mash is so yummy and you won’t feel like you’re giving up a thing!
I grew up with the mentality that a plate contains a meat, vegetable and a starch. Starches typically mean rice or potatoes. We have been trying to watch our carb intake some. I have been wanting to try this cauliflower mash recipe for a while now, and last week, I did. It was amazing, and our whole family loved it.
Try it next time, in place of potatoes — and let me know what you think!
- 1 medium head cauliflower, chopped
- 4 Tablesppons butter
- 3 Tablespoons water
- 4 teaspoons garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
In a bowl microwave cauliflower and water until cauliflower is tender. Time will vary based on your microwave. Will take about 10 minutes.
In either your food processor or stand mixer, add cauliflower and garlic and butter. Whip until smooth. Take time to scrape the sides down. Consistency will be like lumpy mashed potatoes. 🙂
Add remaining seasonings. Whip again.
Top with fresh parsley or chives for serving.
** I added more salt for ours. Add according to your taste preference. I also doubled this recipe. Our family loved it!
