Thanksgiving is just around the corner! This dish is just as tasty as mashed potatoes but a fraction of the carbs and calories! Its also so simple to prepare.



  • 1 medium head of cauliflower 

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1/4 cup of any combination of 2 % milk

  • Optional flavorings: minced garlic (a clove or two); garlic powder (1/2 to 1 teaspoon); grated cheese such as Parmesan


  1. Chop up the cauliflower head into pieces. Microwave or steam it until it's tender.

  2. Place cauliflower in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy; season with a dash of salt and pepper. Taste before adding any butter because it may not need it!

  1. If using any additional flavorings add to food processor and pulse until mixed.
