Mashed Cauliflower ‘Potatoes’
This is seriously the best recipe that I’ve tried when it comes to a mashed potato substitute – in fact, I would choose this over regular mashed potatoes any day! (and this is coming from a girl who orders a glass of champagne and mashed potatoes for dinner on occasion!)
The recipe is so simple it’s almost too good to be true!
1 head cauliflower
1.5 TBSP avocado oil or sunflower oil
5 crushed garlic cloves
2 green onions
1 TBSP nutritional yeast or parmesan cheese
2 TBSP butter
1/2 c buttermilk
1 TBSP thyme
1/2 tsp sea salt or himalayan salt
black pepper to taste
Chop the cauliflower and steam for 5 Min.
While the cauliflower steams, press or crush the garlic and let it sit (this gives the most nutritional benefits)
Heat the oil over medium heat in a frying pan(don’t use olive oil because it’s not heat stable).
Chop the green onion, separating the greens from the white part.
Add the garlic and the whites from the green onion to the frying pan, cook for 2 minutes until the onion is soft and fragrant.
Add all of the ingredients to the food processor (including steamed cauliflower), and process on high until smooth and creamy.
Top with green onions and extra salt and pepper (my favorite is truffle salt!)
