If there was a way to eat creamy mashed potatoes without worrying about your weight or health, wouldn’t you just want to dive in and eat a whole, big bowl of the stuff?? Me too!
I love empowering my clients with recipes and ideas that prove that for every tasty traditional meal there is a better alternative; a healthier alternative that won’t leave you feeling bloated, fatigued and guilty, an alternative that will make you feel alive and energized and great about your body. This is how I want all my clients to feel and this is how I want you to feel too!
So, today I want to share one of those alternatives with you. I am so excited about this awesome alternative let me get straight to it…instead of mashed potato try…
CREAMY MASHED CAULIFLOWER
- 1 head cauliflower
- ¼ cup unsweetened coconut milk
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
Cut your cauliflower into small pieces. Steam the cauliflower until tender (about 10 min). Place cauliflower in a blender or food processor. Add dairy-free milk, salt, and pepper while blending until smooth. Remove from blender and put into a serving bowl.
*Make sure that the cauliflower is soft before removing from steamer. If it’s not soft, it won’t mash nicely, so rather steam for longer.
*Serving suggestion: healthy home-made mushroom gravy, big salad and a piece of clean, lean protein.
Part of what I love about this recipe is that it allows us to play. As adults, we don’t play enough… if you’re in the mode for a little mischief this weekend serve it on an unhealthy, unsuspecting friend or relative – serve it up as mashed potato and take note of their response. They’ll probably only notice a difference once they’re done with their meal and they’re buzzing with good health!
If you’re not in the mood for play, and you just want to get focused that’s fine too because there are many other reasons to enjoy this recipe. Including the high levels of disease-fighting plant sterols, fiber, anti-oxidants, vitamin K, folate and potassium in Cauliflower– to name but a few.
