Garlic Mashed Faux-Tatoes

Mashed Faux-tatoes
1/2 head cauliflower, steamed
1.5 T butter
1 C plain greek yogurt
2 T soft white cheese (that when melts, won’t get stringy)
2 cloves raw garlic, chopped
Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • Toss in Cuisinart with 2 cloves chopped raw garlic.
  • Blend till smooth.
  • Add S & P and serve!

Jesse and I tried these and they’re fantastic, though next time we’re going to try it with less butter, fat free cream cheese, and low-fat yogurt instead.

Update: We tried 1 T butter, 2 T nutritional yeast, low fat plain yogurt (I found we needed a little less, too), added 1 more clove garlic, and left the cheese out. Just as delicious. I am starting to think this recipe can’t be ruined.

    There needs to be more recipes like this. I love mashed potatoes, but it’s nice to see an option that’s low carb and low calorie. It’s so hard to be on a diet and lose weight with so many temptations! With stuff like this, I can feel like I’m being bad without breaking my low carb diet. 🙂
