This recipe is amazzzing. It is a great substitute for mashed potatoes, and tastes even better than mashed potatoes! It’s super low in calories, it’s clean, it’s paleo, it’s low in carbs, it’s high in fibre, it’s basically a dieter’s dream side dish ❤

For extra flavour, you might add some chopped up herbs such as parsley or spring onion, or you could add butter or olive oil, or salt and pepper, or even garlic. Mmm.. garlic butter mashed cauliflower… Yummo!

Now for the recipe:

You will need:

  • Cauliflower
  • Water – enough to cover the cauliflower in the pot
  • Large pot
  • Mashing stick, or hand blender (the hand blender would be best as it would make the cauliflower extra creamy). If desperate, a fork should also work.

You will:

1: Boil the cauliflower in water, until the cauliflower is soft



2: Drain the water

Step 2

Step 2

3: Mash the cauliflower

Step 3

Step 3

4: Serve, adding optional flavourings (see suggestions above). I served mine with marinated lamb chops and a garden salad.

Health Benefits:

As a cruciferous vege, cauliflower has a tonne of healthy properties. It’s high in Vitamin C and contains a range of B vitamins. It’s also high in fibre, which is awesome because that aids healthy digestion. Cauliflower is very low in calories. By replacing standard mashed potatoes with mashed cauliflower, you’ll shave about three quarters of the calories off your side dish, without compromising flavour or volume.
