Green Cauliflower Mash

Have you heard?! Cauliflower is the new mashed potatoes. Yup, move over boring old starchy potatoes, you’ve been replaced by cauliflower. For 2/3 fewer calories and carbs, this cruciferous veg is low on the glycemic index and packed with vitamins.photo(150)In a food processor, combine:

  • 1/2 head cauliflower, steamed and cut into pieces
  • 1 bunch fresh basil leaves
  • 1 handful arugula
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 teaspoon miso
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened milk of choice (I used cashew milk)
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • optional: for added protein, add 1/4 cup chickpeas, tofu, or plain Greek yogurt

Blend until you have a light zesty, green mixture and enjoy! Cauliflower mash makes the perfect side dish, snack, or small meal. To make plain (white) cauliflower mash, simply remove the arugula, basil, and avocado and replace with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Some may not even realize the potatoes are missing…
