Serving Size: Approx. 4
- 1 head of raw cauliflower (a medium head will yield approximately 1 pound of florets)
- 2 cloves of minced garlic
- Salt (to taste)
- Butter (Approx. 2 tbsp)
- Grated Cheese (Optional)
- Fill a medium-large sized pot about half way with water and place on stove to boil.
- Break up the cauliflower into florets or cut them into pieces. Once the water has come to a boil, carefully pour the cauliflower florets into the pot and cook until they become a little bit soft. This will usually take about 15-20 minutes.
- Chop up 2 cloves of garlic (pre-minced garlic can be found at Costco) to be added later.
- Once the cauliflower has been cooked, pour it into a colander to drain the water.
- Next, pour the florets into a food processor and blend on low/medium, stopping occasionally to stir. (it has a tendency to get stuck) After you have stirred the mixture a couple of times it should have a fairly creamy consistency. Now go ahead and add the minced garlic along with approximately 2 tbsp of butter. Salt liberally.
- Run the food processor on high until everything is thoroughly mixed.
You are now ready to serve.
Note: A pound of cauliflower will yield approximately 12 grams of usable carbohydrates (1lb of Mashed Potatoes = 75 grams) plus 12 grams of fibre. While there is a little bit of extra fat and sodium in this recipe from the butter and added salt, it serves as a delicious and healthy substitute to traditional mashed potatoes.
