Faux-tatoes

Faux-tatoes

So here in Louisiana EVERYTHING is eaten over rice. However, I am on a low carb / keto "lifestyle change", otherwise known as a diet. So while my husband and daughter get to eat rice, I have to improvise. I've seen cauliflower mash made on various websites, usually full of bacon and cheese. While equally delicious, I need something that I can eat with roast, to substitute for the rice. More like plain mashed potatoes. So here is the recipe that I'm currently using as my substitute. It's pretty easy and tasty too. 

What you'll need is:

  • 1 head of cauliflower, washed and chopped (6 to 7 inches)
  • 1/2 of a stick of butter (4 tablespoons)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Pretty short list. 

Once you have your cauliflower washed and chopped add it to your pot and cover with water.

Let it boil for about 20 minutes, until fork tender. 

Drain the water through a colander.

Once you have the cauliflower drained transfer to a large bowl.

You could use a potato masher, but I'm using a stick blender. It's a good bit faster, and I don't really want any chunks left.

Add in the half stick of butter, salt and pepper.

And that's it, faux-tatoes.
