A Starchy Comfort Food Gets a Makeover!
It took a leap of faith, but I decided to find out if cauliflower can be a stand-in for potatoes in the comfort food category. It’s that time of year when we start to crave chili, meatloaf, fried chicken, and mashed potatoes.
For people that are counting calories and carbs, eating white potatoes mashed with milk and butter is either a diet no-no or a healthy indulgence. Replacing the potatoes with cauliflower increases the nutritional value, dramatically reduces the calories and carb count, and is easier to prepare; there are no potatoes to peel.
I prepared creamy mashed cauliflower last week and my husband said he likes it better than mashed potatoes.
