Low Carb Mashed Potatoes

Who’s got a craving for starch? Missing the good ol’ meat and potatoes? No worries, we can help! Here’s a little something I learned while living the low carb lifestyle…almost anything can be transformed into your favorite foods from before.

Low Carb Mashed Potatoes

Potatoes…most of you are thinking that consistency would be impossible to achieve with cauliflower, but this seems to be a wonder vegetable. As long as you treat it right, it can be transformed into so many different textures. The trick here is to hand blend the cauliflower, so that it is still chunky and keeps a texture resembling mashed potatoes. You don’t want to use a blender, otherwise you will have a soggy and lumpy mess on your hands. It’s a MASH after all, not a puree.
