Cauliflower is low-glycemic, low-calorie, high in fiber and contains Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, and Folate. Try some mashed cauliflower for a delicious and healthy alternative to mashed potatoes.


I recommend using organic versions of all items listed.



Ingredients:

-8 cups bite-size cauliflower florets (about 1 head)

-3 cloves garlic, peeled

-1/4 cup low-sodium vegetable broth

-1/3 cup plain yogurt

-1/4 teaspoon salt

-Freshly ground pepper to taste

-Fresh chives for garnish


Preparation:

Place cauliflower florets and garlic in a steamer basket over boiling water, cover and steam for approximately 15 minutes or until very tender.


Place the cooked cauliflower and garlic in a food processor. Add vegetable broth, yogurt, salt and pepper; pulse several times, then process until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with chives. Enjoy!

 

Tip: For a little kick, add wasabi powder. Start with 1 teaspoon and add more as desired.
