Recipe Ingredients for Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

1 1/2 cup cauliflower
1/2 cup nonfat buttermilk
1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, quartered lengthwise and sliced 1/2-inch thick
1/2 cup low-fat milk
1 Salt
1 Pepper
1 tablespoon butter
2 scallions, chopped

Recipe Directions for Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

  1. For the cauliflower mashed potatoes, place the cauliflower in a steamer basket, set over boiling water, cover, and steam 15 minutes.

  2. Transfer to a food processor, add the buttermilk and 1/4 cup of the milk, and puree until very smooth, about 2 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, place potatoes in a saucepan and add cold salted water to cover by about 2 inches; bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain, return to the saucepan and heat over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes to dry.

  4. Mash with a potato masher. Add the cauliflower puree, 1/4 cup milk, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir to blend, and heat over medium-low heat, adding more milk as needed for a creamy consistency.

  5. Stir in the butter and the scallions. Cover, and set aside to keep warm.
