Diane Hopson's StoryNo this is not mashed potatoes but I think these are as good if not better. And for sure they are healthier!
As I continue to do a low carb diet, I am finding that this diet does not have to be boring. Even if you aren't low carbing this is an excellent and healthy side dish.
And did I mention; my mashed potato lover had 2 helpings! Well, he did have mashed potatoes too but he was impressed with this dish!
I was truly surprised at how wonderful and flavorful this turned out! It was a wonderful side dish to go with our hamburger steak.
Hope you enjoy!
head of cauliflower
minced garlic, optional
sharp cheddar cheese shredded
salt to taste
fresh ground pepper to taste
bacon, fried and crumbled.
1Clean and trim the cauliflower; break in to pieces. Place in a microwave safe dish, add garlic, 2 tbsp of cream and 1 tbsp butter. Microwave on high for 5 to 6 minutes uncovered, remove from microwave and stir to coat cauliflower with the cream and butter mixture. Return to microwave and heat on high an additional 5 to 6 minutes uncovered.
2Transfer the hot cauliflower and any cream and butter that was left in the bowl to a high speed blender. Add remaining 1 tbsp of cream, and 1 tbsp butter as well as the cheese (reserve a little of the to sprinkle on top), salt, pepper and chives. Process, scraping down sides as needed until creamy. NOTE: This dish is not as creamy as mashed potatoes. You can add a little more cream for a creamier mixture.
