Mashed Cauliflower

Love the taste of mashed potatoes but looking for a lower carb version? Try mashed cauliflower. This recipe will yield a smooth, creamy side dish that's silky smooth and has 75% fewer carbs that mashed potatoes. It was a huge hit at our Thanksgiving dinner last year thanks to the slightly earthy aroma and velvety texture.
