Creamy Mashed Cauliflower

February/March 2005, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (384 votes)

Our savory cauliflower puree makes a perfect low-carb stand-in for mashed potatoes. It gets its fabulous flavor from garlic, buttermilk and a touch of butter and, best of all, it has about one-quarter of the calories of typical mashed potatoes. If you like, vary it by adding shredded low-fat cheese or chopped fresh herbs.

I cleaned and cut up one head then put in Vita-mixer and made warm soup. Put in a big bowl and added 1/2 c non fat sour cream and topped with 4 tbs shredded parm....good for my heart.

I was surprised that I liked this...I do not really like cooked cauliflower. I did not have buttermilk, so I used fat free sour cream instead. I also cooked the garlic in the olive oil separately until it was very lightly browned.

I thought this cauliflower was surprisingly good -- a nice low-carb substitute for mashed potatoes.

Omigosh, if you love veggies...try this recipe. It's so easy - and make enough for left-overs - you'll be glad you did. I used purple cauliflower, and the color was just fantastic....a beautiful lavender, and I served it with salmon, plus Swiss Chard (quick stir-fried with a tiny bit of grape seed oil. Be sure to use Sea Salt for the cauliflower.
