Why Mashed Cauliflower?
If you are eating low carb and want a delicious, creamy side dish this is for you! This will make you think you are eating the most creamy and cheesy mashed potatoes ever! However, no potatoes just cauliflower and fewer carbs. Hooray!
This recipe is the starter version of this side dish. You can add whatever you want to fancy this up. Sometimes, I add bacon, green onions, chives, more cheddar, blue cheese etc…etc…..etc….. Whatever you would add to a potato dish you can add to this yummy mashed cauliflower. Boom!
I am starting to sound like Bubba from Forrest Gump…. mashed cauliflower with bacon, mashed cauliflower with chives, mashed cauliflower with gravy, mashed cauliflower with red wine reduction, mashed cauliflower with blue cheese and bacon. Alas, you get the point, the options are as good as your imagination. Now, I want to go and watch that movie! haha!
Make This for the Holidays:
The holidays are approaching and low carb and keto diets are easily thrown out the window. This is such a fast side dish to whip up and bring with you to parties. It takes the temptation out of the steamy bowl of delicious potatoes. I love me some potato products, but I am just as satisfied by eating this and no guilt afterward. Most parties have a protein source that fits into a low carb or keto diet. You can get cauliflower in the frozen section of most stores, pick some up so you are prepared for the next get together. Pop it into the microwave to steam and you are half way to this side dish being done. Make it Fancy, add some toppings, check your outfit and you are out the door! Holiday party slayed 🙂
I will be adding some extra bags of frozen cauliflower to my shopping list. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
