A, had a dental procedure last week and has been on softer foods for a few days. He had a craving for mashed potatoes but I usually don't have potatoes in my pantry. After a quick google search, I found a great low-carb alternative to mashed potatoes. Substitute fresh cauliflower for potatoes! He actually loved it and had a second serving. Everything tastes good with some garlic and cheese :) Try this side dish during Thanksgiving and your family will not notice the difference.
1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
Boil or steam cauliflower for 8-10 minutes. Drain and reserve 1/2 cup of cooking water. Place cauliflower into food processor with garlic, s&p and olive oil. Pulse until smooth. Sprinkle cheddar cheese and serve.
Serves 3-4 people.
