Creamy mashed potatoes are an American favorite, but let’s be honest, the fat and carbs are completely unhealthy sources of energy, so we normally eliminate this from our diets. While the typical Cauliflower Mash is a great alternative for those who are used to paleo or low carb diets, this is completely weird for die-hard potato lovers! Enter my husband here 🙂 He’s not a cauliflower fan, so the substitution just doesn’t work for him. So I came up with this simple solution, best of both worlds! It’s a serious dupe for real mashed potatoes!!
Recipe serves 4
- 3-4 white sweet potatoes
- 1 head cauliflower
- 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
- 1 cup water
- 2 cloves fresh garlic
- 2 tsp black pepper
- 3 tbs organic butter or coconut oil (optional)
- salt to taste
Chop the sweet potatoes and cauliflower, place in pot with liquid and seasonings, everything except the butter or oil. Cover and steam about 30min medium heat. Cook til veggies are soft and liquid is almost gone.
Mash with a fork, add in butter or oil. Serve next to my Citrus Orange Sirloin Roast!
