Cauliflower is a great alternative to mashed potatoes because unlike potatoes it is low in simple starches and therefore low in carbohydrate. Keeping carbohydrates low is important to easily maintaining a healthy weight or for those trying to loose weight. I will elaborate in a later post. The secret ingredient to my mashed cauliflower may sound naughty, but I assure you it is perfectly legal... it is potatoes... I know I basically said potatoes are bad, but I only use a negligible amount and it really makes the texture better. Here's the recipe:
1. Large head of cauliflower.
2. 1/4 cup instant mashed potato flakes
3. salt and pepper to taste
4. 1/3 cup sour cream. Use Daisy brand sour cream or a local organic brand they are the best.
