Cauliflower is having its day in the trending sun as a healthy ingredient substitute in many of our favorite recipes—like this one, where we swap mashed cauliflower for mashed potatoes in this silky side dish.
Creamy Mashed Cauliflower Recipe
At first glance, this dish does indeed appear to be one of lush, creamy mashed potatoes just waiting to be draped with a decadent gravy. Or wiped straight from the serving dish with the swipe of your finger. But you, my friend, have just had the vegetable wool pulled over your eyes. Because potatoes it isn’t, and healthier it is.
Say hello to your new favorite mash, mashed cauliflower with Parmesan and chives. And guess who’s never going to miss the extra calories that typically come along for the ride with mashed potatoes? That’s right. YOU!
This recipe is from The Dude Diet cookbook by Serena Wolf of the blog Domesticate Me. She wrote this cookbook to supply healthy-ish/healthier recipes for even the most robust male eater —initially her beloved boyfriend who decided it was time to start watching his food intake a little more closely.
The title may mislead you that this cookbook is for “dudes” only. But no way. With over 125 recipes that run the recipe gamut with a whole lot of healthy attitude (and some wonderfully witty writing, too) there’s plenty of deliciousness for every man, woman and child alike.
