Low-Carb Mashed Not-Potatoes Made with Cauliflower. Steam the cauliflower till well-cooked. Add 2-3 tbsp. of butter and mash. If you like it a little chunky, use a potato-masher or mixer. If you like it very smooth, use a stem/wand-type mixer. Add cream, a tbsp. at a time, till desired consistency. Salt and pepper to taste.
The most difficult part about following a low-carb lifestyle is probably holiday time without the mashed potatoes. Now, I won’t insult you by telling you that my Low-Carb Gluten-Free Smashed Cauliflower Fauxtatoes taste exactly like mashed potatoes, but I can promise you that the texture is pretty similar and the taste is out of this world. There is a pretty good chance however, that if you don’t tell your guests that it’s cauliflower, they will probably think it IS potatoes; and they will love it!
Where does the time go? It’s almost Memorial Day weekend! You know what that means: Barbecues! Cookouts! Potlucks!
I loved potatoes. Bake ’em!! , Fry ’em!!, Chip ’em!!, Mash ’em!! Unfortunately potatoes have no place in our LC eating plans. So what do we eat instead of potato? The answer is the common cauliflower. Like all members of the cruciferous family the cauliflower is a rich source of vitamins and minerals particularly vitamin C. It also contains sulfurous compounds which may help to prevent certain cancers from forming. It also causes the smell when cooked. We cook in an enclosed microwave container with a lid.
