Mashed Cauliflower 

This is a great alternative to mashed potatoes- cut the carbs and calories with this delicious side!

Total Time: 15 Minutes

Prep Time: 5  Minutes

Cook Time: 10 Minutes

Ingredients: Cauliflower (any additional seasonings for flavor: garlic, cheese, pepper, salt, herbs, cinnamon etc.) and 1/3 cup of  water.

Grab a head of cauliflower and chop up into medium to small pieces or take a bag of frozen cauliflower. (Fresh or Frozen, which ever is more convenient for you)

Take a pot (big enough for your cauliflower) and fill with water about 2 inches or 1/3 cup (just enough to cover the bottom of the pot. Put on a high, wait to boil. Once the water is boiling place cauliflower in and cover. Simmer for 7-10 minutes.

Once your cauliflower is cooked, drain the remaining water and grab a blender, masher, or food processor to start the mashing process.  Mash, blend, or process your cauliflower a few cups at a time (found to get the best consistency and quicker) while adding your seasonings of choice towards the end of the process.  Blend till you get a smooth, thick, consistency of mashed potatoes!

Yup, it is that easy! I like to make mine sweet with cinnamon and stevia, mixed with my mashed sweet potatoes. It helps curb my sweet potatoes during competition prep!
