Mash is Mash
I’d like to thank the cauliflower gods for this one because never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined what I’m about to share with you. I have created the creamiest, smoothest mash out there and it’s not made from potatoes. In fact, it’s cauliflower, and I’m not lying to you when I say that if you place the creamiest mashed potatoes you’ve ever had side by side with this Creamy Cauliflower Mash you won’t be able to tell which is which. While you may think ‘mash is mash,’ it is undoubtedly my humble opinion that this creamy cauliflower mash is better ?
The process of creating this delicious side dish is similar to mashed potatoes, but without the hard parts! You’ll simply throw the cauliflower into a processor after boiling and blend until silky smooth! It’ll be the easiest dish to make this year and the biggest hit at the Thanksgiving table!
What Makes It Better?
Nutrition: Let’s get right down to business. The macronutrient we all focus on most as keto-ers is carbs, specifically net carbs. Net carbs is the overall carbs minus the fiber. One cup of cauliflower has 6 net carbs while one cup of potatoes has 22 net carbs. Astonishing, I know. If you opted for the potatoes you’d be over the standard ’20g of carbs or below’ daily intake. So nutritionally, cauliflower mash is your best bet!
Mouth Feel: The cauliflower mash is not only creamier, but absorbs and blends the flavors of each individual ingredient perfectly. You get hints of rosemary, garlic and parmesan with each bite you take and the lightness in weight prevents the dreaded heaviness in your belly you would normally get with potatoes.
When it comes to mashed potatoes the starchiness of them makes it harder to get a perfectly distributed flavor. After a lot more salt, however, the potatoes come to life. But, while satisfying your tastebuds they wreck havoc on your abs!
But wait, there is more!
We have also made a keto-friendly gravy to pour on top of the mash. It’s one of our simplest and quickest recipes to make, and tastes just as great atop a slab of turkey. You are not going to want to celebrate Thanksgiving this year without this gravy at the dinner table!
