We love this perfect low carb alternative to mashed potatoes with its creamy buttery taste! This bariatric friendly accompaniment for your holiday meal is so delicious, it will become a staple in your home for an “anytime meal!” Enjoy in confidence.
1 medium head cauliflower, cut up into florets
4 cloves crushed garlic
1/3 cup 1% buttermilk
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp light butter
*Steam or boil cauliflower and garlic until soft. Drain, add buttermilk, light butter, salt, pepper and purée with a hand blender. If you don’t own a hand blender, you should consider getting one. It is one of my most used gadgets in my kitchen, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. A regular blender would work fine as well.

If you don’t have buttermilk, light sour cream also works great. Per Misti Gueron, low fat milk works great too!
