I have to share my most favorite vegetable. Cauliflower can be made so many different ways and so delicious. I recommend Mashed Cauliflower if you choose to do a low carb lifestyle diet change. It’s yummy and so satisfying!
I can not share the exact recipe on here, because this is what I did. I went on Pinterest and searched the best way I can replace mashed potatoes. I found mashed cauliflower and I read a couple of recipes and decided to add my own way of cooking and amount of bacon and butter that I will add. Here is the recipe of some mashed cauliflower that I did look at.
Cauliflower comes cut up for you!! No, not just the broken into crowns, they are chopped like riced cauliflower. It’s great isn’t it? I recommend it, especially if you don’t have a lot time like this mommy does – I actually took these photos and made this while my son crawled around my legs wanting my attention.
First, cook your bacon. This is my most favorite part of mashed cauliflower, so I use an entire package of bacon. Plus, I save the bacon grease to flavor vegetables or my chicken – its soo yummy! Set aside bacon.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
In a large pot add just a bit of water and add the cauliflower (I do not microwave it) once the cauliflower gets warm, I use a potatoe masher and mashed the riced vegetable as much as I can. Here, you have a choice, you can put your cauliflower (with butter) in a blender, or if you are like me, I like more consistency in my mashed cauliflower, just like I do with mashed potatoes. Here, add about 2 cups of cheese, 1 cup of sour cream, and 1/4 cup of butter, mix together. Then add your bacon chopped up.
Place your mashed cauliflower in a dish and place in oven for about 15 min.
Take out and there you have it – your mashed cauliflower! Delicious!
