One of my favorite healthy comfort foods is “Faux Mashed Potatoes.” If you’ve never tried this dish, trust me….it satisfies the desire for warm, grounding, creamy mashed potatoes while packing a strong nutritional punch and not spiking your blood sugar.
I love this dish any time of the year, but especially during the holidays. Whenever I serve it, even picky kids ask for seconds!
Serves 4 as a side dish
1 head cauliflower, cut up into pieces
½ cup Plain Greek Yogurt
1 tablespoon Butter Buds
2 garlic cloves (optional)
¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese or goat cheese (optional)
salt and pepper
Steam the cauliflower until tender.
Place the steamed cauliflower in the food processor.
Pulse slowly adding only a little of the yogurt at a time.
(Make sure it doesn’t get too runny…you may end up using a little less or a little more)
Add the garlic or cheese (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste.
May you and yours enjoy a healthy Thanksgiving,
