Mashed potatoes are a favorite, especially as the weather gets colder and we want warm, comfort food. Yet, most of us each much more than 1 serving of mashed potatoes! I swapped the potatoes for cauliflower and added garlic, parmesan, some extra virgin olive oil, and they are amazing!! This is a great healthy option to have this winter and for Thanksgiving! Plus, it sneak in veggies and those picky eaters won’t even know it.
Literally, these are creamy, look like mashed potatoes and you can’t even tell the difference!! Try swapping these for mashed potatoes and see who notices.
