If you like mashed potatoes but worry about the high-carb content, worry no longer. Mashed cauliflower tastes just like mashed potato but has far fewer calories and packs a bigger nutrient punch. This recipe includes a crunchy twist by adding cashews, but if you want to save the calories you can simply leave out the cashews.
- Cauliflower (rough chopped), 4 cups
- Cashews (crushed), ¼ cup
- Coconut milk, ¼ cup
- Salt, 1 pinch
- Pepper, 1 pinch
- Cinnamon, 1 pinch
Add all the ingredients to a pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Simmer for 15 minutes and then remove from heat. Purée in a blender or food processor until smooth. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time if necessary to get the mixture moving.
Alternatively, you could just steam the cauliflower and then mash it or puree it in a blender/Magic Bullet/food processor. Either way works!
