Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Time for me to put together some healthy options to keep around the table. Lately cauliflower has been super popular as a replacement ingredient in so many recipes! I saw someone use it as a mashed potato replacement and I thought “Gross” but of course I had to try it. If people looked at most of my recipes they could say the same thing until they tried it. After whipping up this cauliflower mash, I promise I will NEVER eat regular mashed potatoes again! The cauliflower taste was completely transformed into a potato flavor. This will be an amazing substitute on my Thanksgiving table this year. All  I need now is to whip up some healthy gravy to go with it.


  • 1 Large Cauliflower Head
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • Black Pepper
  • 3 Cups Low Sodium Vegetable Broth ( Chicken Broth Works Too)
  1. Cut off large stems of cauliflower and chop up the remaining pieces
  2. Mash the garlic cloves.
  3. Boil cauliflower and garlic in broth for 40 minutes (or until fork tender)
  4. Drain remaining broth after removing from stove.
  5. Place cauliflower in an electric mixer and blend until completely mashed.
  6. Top with pepper
