We love this creamy and warm new way to make mashed faux potatoes! “Hello, bariatric friendly,” “Hello cauliflower,” “Hello skinny Thanksgiving!”
1 head of cauliflower
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons light sour cream
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
freshly ground black pepper
*Separate the cauliflower into florets and chop the core finely.
*Bring about 1 cup of water to a simmer in a pot, then add the cauliflower.
*Cover and turn the heat to medium.
*Cook the cauliflower for 12-15 minutes or until very tender.
*Drain and discard all of the water (the drier the cauliflower is, the better) *Add the milk, butter, sour cream, salt and pepper and mash with a masher or blend until looks like “mashed potatoes.”
*Top with chives.
