Garlic Cauliflower Mashed Potates

Cauliflower lends a nice nutty flavor and creamy consistency when puréed. In this version of garlic herbed mashed potatoes, we have added cauliflower and cheese to this holiday staple.

Why cauliflower?

Cauliflower is classified as a cruciferous vegetable, along with other veggies such as broccoli, cabbage, and bok choy. Regular intake can provide us with photo-nutrients and glucosinolates, compounds known to reduce inflammation and lower our risk for developing cancer. Not only do we get these anti-cancer nutrients, cauliflower also is rich in fiber which will keep us feeling full and satisfied. This low – calorie vegetable is rich in vitamins and minerals like folate and vitamin K.

Give this a try and see if you or your kids can spot the cauliflower!
