I often get in the mood for warm comfort foods that I know I shouldn’t give in to. I was craving creamy mashed potatoes so bad last night, so I tried making Taralynn Mcnitt’s Garlic Cauliflower Mash and I was so surprised by how well it turned out and how delicious it was. I couldn’t stop raving about the flavors in my mouth to my fiance… “It’s like creamy guacamole”… “Wait no its more like garlic hummus”. It definitely hit the spot and I use the steamer bag method all the time now! Better yet, you don’t need fancy food processors or blenders so you can make it anymore! It’s full of fiber, low calorie, low sugar, high protein, and low carb!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 head Cauliflower
  • Ziplock Steamer Bag
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder or seasoning like ms. dash
  • 3 tbsp greek yogurt
  • pinch of pepper

Rinse and chop cauliflower, and put in steamer bag. Heat bag of Cauliflower in microwave until very soft (follow steaming directions on bag). In a mixing bowl, add steamed cauliflower and mash with fork, add chopped avocado and greek yogurt, mash with fork until smooth and add seasonings and parmesan! I love to serve these in the empty avocado halves :) Taralynn stores this dish in the fridge with the avocado pit to keep fresh.
