Mashed Cauliflower Recipe: A Healthier Mashed Potatoes?
By Dr. Josh Axe
November 22, 2021
Whenever you're preparing a meal in which mashed potatoes would make a good pairing, consider making a healthier substitute instead: mashed cauliflower, or as I like to call them, mashed caul-tatoes!
Simply, it's mashed cooked cauliflower but when made with some ghee or butter, salt and pepper, and a little parsley? Yum! Then add some Multi Collagen Protein, Collagen Peptides or Bone Broth Protein for some added protein plus gut, skin and joint benefits.
This mashed cauliflower recipe has a great nutrient profile, too, with only 5 net carbs (8 grams of carbohydrates and 3 grams of fiber), 12 grams of performance fats and 8 grams of protein per serving. Plus one serving offers 100% Daily Value for vitamin C.
It'll be a hit at your table, trust me!
This "cauliflower mashed potatoes" is one of the easier side dishes you'll ever make. First, take a medium-sized head of fresh cauliflower and slice it into florets while removing most of the core.
Place the florets in a steamer basket and steam for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the ghee in a small pan over low heat. Use unsalted butter if you don't have ghee, but ghee will impart a better flavor.
Next, in a food processor or high-power blender, add the cauliflower, protein powder, ghee, salt and pepper. Process until smooth.
Serve immediately, topping with parsley.
