Our savory cauliflower puree makes a perfect low-carb stand-in for mashed potatoes. It gets its fabulous flavor from garlic, buttermilk and a touch of butter and, best of all, it has about one-quarter of the calories of typical mashed potatoes. If you like, vary it by adding shredded low-fat cheese or chopped fresh herbs.

Recipe Ingredients for Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

250 grams Cauliflower
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
2/5 cup Milk, Nonfat, Fluid
2 tbsp Omega-3 with Extra Virgin Olive Oil Buttery Spread
1 tsp Parsley, Dried
0.33 oz Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 tbsp light sour cream

Recipe Directions for Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

  1. Place cauliflower florets and garlic in a steamer basket over boiling water, cover and steam until very tender, 12 to 15 minutes. (Alternatively, place florets and garlic in a microwave-safe bowl with 1/4 cup water, cover and microwave on High for 3 to 5 minutes.)

  2. Place the cooked cauliflower and garlic in a food processor. Add buttermilk, 2 teaspoons oil, butter, salt and pepper; pulse several times, then process until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a serving bowl. Drizzle with the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and garnish with chives, if desired. Serve hot.
