Cauliflower “Mashed …

Don’t miss the Christmas Dinner Twitter Party I am part of today with iFit starting at 8:00 am MST. Follow hashtag #SkinnyHoliday to follow and cook along with me. I will be offering tips and suggestions while baking 6 DIFFERENT recipes with you :) We will be taking some traditional Christmas favorites and making healthier adjustments to them. It’s going to be fun! This is one recipe I will be sharing at the party today.

These Cauliflower “Mashed Potatoes” are amazing. Here is why.

1. They are a great and healthier alternative to traditional mashed potatoes.

2. They taste similar to mashed potatoes just a little different consistency.

3. They are delicious!

If you are looking for some healthier alternative side dishes to your meals, you might want to consider these! My family loved them!

    We make these all of the time and they are delicious! Make sure to get the moisture out of the cauliflower before mashing. That helps with the consistency.

    Sooo… I feel silly asking this, but what is a “chicken base”? Is it like a broth or something?
