Cauliflower Low Carb Mash ... flavour it your way !




Cauliflower is an extremely healthy vegetable. It is very low in calories yet high in vitamins, and can provide some powerful health benefits, and is a great source of nutrients. In fact, cauliflower contains some of almost every vitamin and mineral that you need, including a few that many people need more of. Additionally cauliflower contains unique antioxidants that may reduce inflammation and protect against several diseases, such as cancer and heart disease. What’s more, cauliflower is easy to add to your diet. It’s tasty, easy to prepare and can replace high-carb foods in several recipes. 

How about this suggestion... you can jazz up your low-carb mashed cauliflower - four ways. Curried, buttery, mustard and cheesy. See how you can flavour individual portions easily! It keeps the entire family and any picky eaters happy!

Good stuff!! I never thought I'd fall in love with cauliflower. Thanks for these suggestions, Jan :) We've been looking for an excuse to enjoy it more often.

Susan Kane said...

I love to munch on raw cauliflower.

Could these recipes be made in a food processor?

We do eat a lot of cauliflower and really enjoy it in all the ways you suggest. My favourite is cauliflower cheese.

Thanks for sharing.

I think I am allergic to this one as I never can eat it. I haven´t eaten it since I was a child.

Miss Val's Creations said...

Great ideas! We eat a lot of cauliflower but have never mashed it. These would be perfect side dishes.

Bob Bushell said...

Nice and flavourable.

CJ Kennedy said...

This is the one veggie I can't get Himself to eat )-:

Elephant's Child said...

Yum. Our cauliflowers have hit obscene prices at the moment so they are off my menu. I hope they return soon.

Tom said...

...lots of choices!

I replaced cauliflower for potatoes before and no one knew the difference. It's much healthier than potatoes, too.

Love cauliflower and these are some great new ways to serve it.

That just might work!! Thanks

This N That said...

That could work for even me!!

happyone said...

I tried this not too long ago and we didn't care for mashed cauliflower. I'll have to stick with my real mashed potatoes. :)

I haven't heard of mashed cauliflower but I bet it is delicious. I will have to try this! Add a little cheese and it sounds spectacular. Thanks for sharing. hugs-Erika

William Kendall said...

My mother would make it with a white sauce.

magiceye said...

Wow! This is an eye opener! Thank you for the information and recipes!

Martha said...

I've never tried cauliflower mash but I would really like to. These suggestions are really great. I will choose one and see how it turns out!

Lorrie said...

I'm taking a few minutes to go online while dinner cooks - and there is a cauliflower mash happening with garlic and cream - like an alfredo sauce. These ones you've featured also sound delicious!

Dewena said...

Mustard does seem to enhance cauliflower but I've never tried curry. We both love cauliflower soup and use chicken broth instead of dairy in it as my husband can't handle lactose. And about once a year I make Dinah Shore's Cauliflower Pie, two of them. One with cheddar cheese for me and goat cheese for him. But they do have a potato crust.

Catarina said...

Great ideas!
: )

Margaret D said...

Look good suggestions for the cauliflower.

Iris Flavia said...

Hmmmm, the cheesy one I will try for sure!!

RO said...

These are great new ways for me to get in some cauliflower, and I thank you! Hugs...RO

Mary Kirkland said...

I used cauliflower and even turnips to make a mash and it was good.

Hi Jan,

Cauliflower cheese is one of my favourites and always works so well with a meal.
Hope all is well with you and you must be enjoying that spring will be there in your world.
Happy Wednesday

I love mashed cauliflower, usually put cheese on it, but will try with mustard and curry too :)
Thanks Jan

Angie said...

Jan - thanks for these suggestions. I would like to eat more cauliflower, but I find it a bit bland. This will help!

Carla from The River said...

Hello Susan
The recipes featured here were all made using a saucepan. However, there are quite a few recipes available where you can use a food processor, this one for example

Hello,
Thanks for sharing the suggestions on ways to eat and prepare cauliflower.
Cheese may be one of my favorite ways. have a great day!

Phil Slade said...

Some good ideas for a cauliflower hater there Jan. That's me as you may remember. the mustard might be best for me but I may have to add extra mustard and curry powder. Have a good weekend down there but I don't think the weather is warming just yet.

Lee said...

I love all vegetables and fruit...and eat lots of both...both are regular parts of my daily intake.

Ohneclue said...

These are all delicious and I am anxious to prepare each of them for us, so thanks a lot.
