Mashed Potatoes?

Now I’ve noticed that I’ve made two posts and all I’ve mentioned so far has been sweet foods. Does that say something about me? Nah.  I figured it was about time to mention something that wouldn’t taste delicious smothered in maple syrup. Yes, I know that really limits my choices but I managed to find it! And the first ever savory dish on this blog is…..

Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes!

Fine, I admit that there actually aren’t any potatoes in this recipe. And by saying that, I know you all might hate me right now ….but give it a chance! Mashed potatoes are one super decadent side dish and, while I’m not anti-decadence at all, I am anti-guilt and pro-health. Besides, for anyone that loves spices as much as me, you might find you like this super flavorful mashed cauliflower even more then plain ol’ potatoes. I know I do!

Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower (roughly chopped) about 18 oz
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/8 cup water
  • 1 Laughing Cow Light Cheese Wedge
  • Spices (example: My usual spice blend includes;
  • Garlic
  • Cumin
  • Red Chile Flakes
  • Herbs De Provense
  • Creole Seasoning
  • Chile Powder

Steps

1.) Roughly chop the head of cauliflower and throw it into a large pot with the milk and water mixture.

2.) Bring the pot to a boil.

3.) Reduce heat to medium and cook for about 15 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender.

4.) Add the cheese wedge and whatever spices you like and blend in with a stick blender or normal blender until creamy.

This recipe is addictive! I love it served with anything you’d normally serve with mashed potatoes. I’ve even used in as a replacement in recipes, such as Shepard’s Pie, that call for mashed potatoes. And the best…wait… not the best,the flavor is the best,the SECOND best part of this is that the WHOLE recipe is only 190 calories! The recipe makes enough to feed three hungry people or 1 extremely mashed potato deprived soul. Yum!

About loavesandkisses

I'm 16 and have been into cooking healthy for about two years. I love baking and a dessert without chocolate has to be pretty bloody tasty for me to like it! Right now my passion is trying out new recipes and cooking styles as a sort of self-teaching experience. I like to try out new cooking styles by sticking to that style for a week. So far it's just been a week of vegan and a week of raw. I'm hoping to try gluten free next. This blog will be about foods I make, recipes I try, restaurants I go to and (although this last sentence sounds painfully self centered) generally about me and this new world of food I just so happened to stumble into. I hope you like it. ~LoavesAndKisses
