Mashed Cauliflower for Skinny #SundaySupper – Supper for a Steal

Mashed Cauliflower - Supper for a Steal

This week #SundaySupper is focusing on all things skinny and let’s face it after all that Valentine’s Day candy and chocolates we could all probably use that. My jeans tell me I could use a few more skinny #SundaySuppers.

I wanted to try something that I hadn’t tried yet, Mashed Cauliflower. I keep hearing about it being a substitute for mashed potatoes, yada , yada, yada… I don’t really eat mashed potatoes too often, but I am a big fan of cauliflower in any way, shape, or form so I wanted to test out a recipe.

This recipe I got from Whole Foods and while it was good and I enjoyed it I don’t think you could pass this off for potatoes to any one. Guess what it tasted like? If you guessed mashed cauliflower you would be correct.

For all of you cauliflower lovers, give this a try, but if you aren’t a fan of cauliflower you should probably just stick to smaller portions of mashed taters to lower your carb intake SmileMashed Cauliflower -- Supper for a Steal
