Eatingwell.com: 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 Creamy Mashed Cauliflower

8 cups Cauliflower
4 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
1/3 cup 1% milk
1 tsp lemon juice
4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Freshly ground pepper to taste
2 tbsp scallions

Recipe Directions for Creamy Mashed Cauliflower

  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.
