With Brian’s Type 2 Diabetes diagnosis, we have gotten very creative with vegetables. One thing we tried was substituting mashed potatoes – a typical dinner staple – with mashed cauliflower. I LOVE mashed potatoes, so I was VERY skeptical. I admit, I am now a believer.
1 head of cauliflower, trimmed and cut into pieces
1/2 c. sour cream OR plain greek yogurt
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1/4 c. milk
salt and pepper to taste
1. Steam cauliflower until fork tender.
I use our rice cooker/steamer and it takes 17 minutes. You can also steam the piece in a stove-top steamer basket or in a covered microwave-safe bowl.
2. Place steamed cauliflower in a blender. Add remaining ingredients. Pulse a few times to break up larger pieces in the bottom.
Continue blending ingredients just until creamy. The mixture will resemble very creamy mashed potatoes.
3. Serve and Enjoy!
