Love mashed potatoes? Then you MUST try this alternative!! My family told me that they wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between these “mashed” vs. REAL mashed.
I like cauliflower mashed because it fills the craving for mashed potatoes without making me feel sick from the richness of real mashed potatoes. Don’t get me wrong…I love mashed potatoes! However, if I want to eat them, I have to eat a small portion because it does’t sit well with me. I also add goat cheese to this recipe to give it that creaminess that everyone craves in mashed potatoes. Try out this recipe and let me know what you think!
