Cauliflower “Mashed Potatoes”

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!

1 head Cauliflower
1 Tbsp. butter
1/4 cup skim milk
1/2 Tbsp. Chicken Base
1/2 Tbsp. garlic
1/2 Tbsp. chives, chopped
Break Cauliflower into large chunks, removing any leaves or greenery.
Boil Cauliflower until it becomes fork tender. Once it reaches fork tender, remove from water and place in a large bowl or blender.
Add 1 Tbsp butter, skim milk, chicken base and garlic.
Beat or blend until smooth.
Stir in chives.
Warm up as necessary.

    I love using mashed cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes! A great way to work in some extra veggies, too, for the family :)

    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.
