Creamy Mashed Cauliflower


I have a cauliflower explosion in my garden. We’ve just had copious amounts of rain and high humidity and BOOM the cauliflowers have gone MAD!!! And the crazy thing is my chooks don’t want to touch them!

I love mashed potatoes, but my gut doesn’t deal with them that well. For some people, the lectins in white potatoes can bother the gut. White potatoes are tasty and have some nutritional benefits, they are nothing compared to this nutrition substitute: cauliflower!

Before you click away, hear me out… when prepared and mashed correctly, cauliflower has a very similar texture to mashed potatoes and a sweet and buttery taste. Most kids won’t flinch at the difference, and you can rest happy knowing you are squeezing in extra protein and nutrients. Top with melted cheese, and even the most adamant of veggie haters will give it a try.

1 Large Head of Cauliflower Steamed
1/2 C non-fat greek yogurt
2 TBS Butter
Salt and Pepper to taste

You may need to add a little milk if you want a runnier consistency!
