Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes have the taste and texture of regular mashed potatoes but about HALF the calories! You won’t even be able to taste a difference!
What are Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes?
Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes are simply cauliflower added to regular mashed potatoes using a 1:1 ratio. The taste and texture stay the same, but the calorie count is half of what a regular serving of mashed potatoes would be. Cauliflower also adds additional fiber and anti-oxidants to this delicious side dish. I’ve been hearing about Cauliflower Mashed potatoes for a while, but until now I have never dared to try them. I am SO SAD I waited so long!
A Low-Calorie Side Dish for Thanksgiving Dinner
We had a bunch of family over to try all of our low-calorie Thanksgiving recipes. No one could even tell that there was anything different about these potatoes! Everyone kept saying, “There is cauliflower in these?? I can’t even taste it!” Even the teenagers and younger kids gobbled these up without knowing there was cauliflower in it. Seriously, this is the WAY TO GO every time! You won’t feel guilty putting a little extra gravy on your potatoes knowing that they are almost half the calories of regular mashed potatoes.
This is a great way to cut down on those Thanksgiving calories without sacrificing taste. This is yet another recipe from the executive chef at Fitness Ridge, Chef Sam (all of his recipes are so stinkin’ good)!
