The Modern Pilgrim :: Cauliflower Mashed "Potatoes"


So we have posted this once before and it was a major hit, so our decision to include it in the Modern Pilgrim Series was a no brainer! This would make a great alternative to traditional mashed potatoes or even the mashed sweet potatoes that we posted a few days ago. With a tendency toward low-fat and low-carb, this recipe is sure to please!

1 large head of cauliflower
3/4 cup lowfat cottage cheese
1 TSP garlic powder
1/2 TSP ground black pepper

1. Prepare the cauliflower by rinsing and separating cauliflower and cutting into florets.
2. Steam cauliflower for approximately 10 minutes until soft and tender.
3. Remove cauliflower from steamer and place in a large mixing bowl or stand mixer.
4. Add remaining ingredients.
5. Stir with an electric mixer or stand mixer, breaking up cauliflower florets into pieces/chunks until mixed and desired texture/consistency is achieved. 
6. Enjoy!
