If you’re involved in the foodie world at all or follow food people on Instagram or other social media, you’ll know that cauliflower is really in its hay day. It’s amazing what people think of when it comes to making things out of cauliflower. So far I’ve seen pizza crust, “rice”, smoothies, mashed, and the weirdest thing…ice cream. Wait, what?! Ice cream?? That’s right, I’ve actually seen cauliflower-based ice cream. I’m kind of interested in trying it, but I’m also feeling like maybe we should just leave cauliflower out of the ice cream world.
This recipe is my take on mashed cauliflower. It’s a great substitute for those not wanting the heavy, classic mashed potatoes. It’s much lighter than your regular potatoes and won’t leave you with a potato-bomb in your belly. You want it to taste like mashed potatoes though right? Of course! And I can tell you that this mashed cauliflower recipe is so close to the regular mashed potatoes. It’s buttery, creamy, and herby. Not to mention healthy and delicious!
