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.
-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
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.
