Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower "Mashed Potatoes"

Okay, so I’m slightly behind the whole cauliflower for everything craze, but better late than never.  This roasted garlic cauliflower “mashed potatoes” recipe is so good, I even fooled my hubby!   Yep, that’s right, he thought they were potatoes!  Now there’s a win-win for ya!

I mean, we ALL pretty much LOVE mashed potatoes right?  The only problem is, they are very high in carbs, and even though potatoes have some pretty amazing health benefits, in my mind, they don’t overcome the whole carb thing, because the carbs in potatoes are almost immediately transformed into sugar, and giving a blast to my blood sugar is NOT something I want or need in my life!

Pair this with my super healthy gravy and you will have your taste buds singing hallelujah!

This delish recipe is found on page 29 of my recently published cookbook, Healthy Holidays with the Unconventional Foodie.  It is one of 52 amazing, full-color recipes that you are sure to LOVE!  You can pick up the book HERE.  All of the recipes contain full nutritional information, are diabetic friendly and heart healthy.  Lots of them are gluten-free and vegan!  There’s something for EVERYONE!
