A option for the days you are just CRAVING some mashed potatoes, but are trying to stay low carb. It’s amazing the things you can do with cauliflower ~ make rice, buffalo wings, taco meat, and for this recipe we mash it up to make a delicious cauli-mash!
Let’s begin with the wonderful health benefits of cauliflower! It has been shown to improve blood pressure and kidney function, it contains anti-inflammatories, it’s an amazing source of vitamin C (77% of your daily value in ONE serving!!), boosts brain health, PLUS – when cauliflower is combined with curcumin, it has shown to help prevent and treat prostate cancer!! And for this recipe – we combined cauliflower with turmeric, which contains curcumin! WIN-WIN!
Not to mention some added nutritional yeast of some extra body love! Nutritional yeast is a complete protein, it contains 18 amino acids ~ 9 of which are essential for your body that it can’t produce! It’s a wonderful source of protein, fiber, B vitamins, and minerals. Because of it’s natural cheesy flavor, it’s used by most vegans and people on the paleo diet as a replacement to cheese!
Last but not least we throw in some garlic, thyme, salt and pepper to finish off the wonderful flavors. Use this recipe as a side or even a main dish depending on how hungry you are! This is so tasty your family won’t even know it’s not potatoes! (;
