Faux-Tatoes

IMG_7689 edit 

Mashed cauliflower, who would’ve ever known it tastes just like mashed potatoes! I call this side dish faux-tatoes. I can honestly say I could eat a whole head of cauliflower when I make it like this… whoops? Good thing cauliflower is excellent for you! 

What’s so great about cauliflower? 

  • It helps detox toxins from your body
  • It is a great source of anti-oxidants
  • It has vitamin K- an anti-inflammatory vitamin
  • Like many vegetables, it is low calorie but very filling and nutritious

When you’re craving a comfort food without the guilt afterwards, this is the perfect recipe for you. The Faux-Tatoes are made with cauliflower but taste just like your favorite mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving Dinner.  

Cooking Tip: Although you may be tempted to buy cauliflower that can be cooked in a microwavable bag, take the extra time to steam it yourself. When you microwave foods you lose some health benefits. 

Flavor Tip: I like using Himalayan salt on this versus sea salt.
