Curried Mashed Cauliflower

Cauliflower is all the rage among health trends right now and as of right now, I see nothing wrong with this. It offers an extra serving of vegetables, and can be a great lower-carbohydrate option for individuals with diabetes, or those who are watching their carb intake.

Cauliflower has been used frequently to swap higher-carbohydrate foods such as breads, pizza dough, rice, and others among them. My version is a swap for mashed potatoes with a spicy, flavorful twist. Let’s get started!


*recipe is Low-carb, Vegan, and Gluten-Free πŸ˜€ *

Ingredients:

  • 1 head cauliflower [about 4 cups]
  • 1-2 tsp vegan butter
  • curry powder
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • salt & pepper

Procedure:

  1. Steam the cauliflower. Use whatever method you desire. Some pre-packaged bags allow for steaming in the bag. If not, take a large microwave-safe bowl and fill with about an inch of water, and fill the rest with cauliflower. Microwave for 4-5 minutes. It does not matter if you used florets or riced cauliflower – the smaller the pieces, the shorter amount of time you need to cook it.
  2. Drain cauliflower and place in food processor.
  3. Add vegan butter, curry powder, garlic, and salt & pepper to taste.
  4. Blend until smooth.
  5. Dust with chili powder for spice.
  6. Serve warm, or store as meal prep.
  7. ENJOY!
