Faux Garlic & Chive Mashed Potatoes


For the past two months I have been on a low carb kick, along with my gluten free diet.  This can become challenging when it comes to finding low carb side dishes.  There are times when you just want mashed potatoes!

So this is what I came up with to satisfy my mashed potato craving.  Delicious and satisfying - I really felt like I was eating mashed potatoes.  Can't get much better than that!


Faux Garlic & Chive Mashed Potatoes

1 medium head of cauliflower
2 cups vegetable broth
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic, chopped
1 tbsp chives, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper

Pour the broth into a saucepan and bring to boil.  Rinse and cut cauliflower into pieces then add to the boiling broth and cook for about 6-8 minutes, or until soft.  Drain and pat dry with paper towels (you want it as dry as you can get it), but do not let it cool.  Place cauliflower in the bowl of a food processor and add the remaining ingredients.  Puree until nice and smooth and it resembles the look of mashed potatoes.  Makes about 4 servings.
