So I’m not going to even TRY and tell you that these taste just like potatoes and you won’t even know the difference…cause they don’t and trust me you will! But if you are trying to cut back on your carb intake and would like something that’s creamy like potatoes then give these guys a try. And when you’re doing the dishes and continually sticking your fork back in the pot you won’t have all that guilt like before. Ok, maybe that’s just me but whatever.
1 head cauliflower cut into florets
2 tablespoons butter
¼ cup half and half
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 tablespoons Italian parsley, roughly chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Steam the cauliflower florets until fork tender. I pop mine in the microwave in a covered dish with ¼ cup of water for 10 minutes. Transfer the steamed cauliflower to a food processor (or you can mash by hand) and add remaining ingredients except half and half. Pulse until all ingredients are coarsely chopped (you may have to do this in batches). Once everything is uniform in size, turn your processor on full blast and stream in the half and half. When you reach your desired consistency add salt and pepper to taste and more butter if desired.
Serve this in place of mashed potatoes along side your some of your favorite dishes.
