Cauliflower Herb Mashed Potatoes

Unlike most of the health concious these days, I am not afraid of carbs or potatoes. Our bodies run on carbohydrates and they fuel our brains! However, I am always looking to diversify and healthify what I eat, so I thought I’d try a blend of potatoes and cauliflower for this batch of savory mashed veggies. I’m loving this dish topped with avocado. I know, avocado is in every savory meal I eat, but it’s summer in California, they are delicous!  Plus I don’t cook with a lot of fat, and avocados are healthy fats your body needs!

You need:

1 cauliflower

4 small potatoes (peeled if you prefer)- i love yukon gold for their buttery yellow quality

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/8 tsp crushed red pepper

2 tbs chopped fresh parsley

4 cloves garlic

Steam cauliflower, potatoes, and garlic until nice and soft.

Combine all in a blender until nice and creamy. Top with fresh parsely and avocado! If you’re feeling really decadent, top with some herbed goat cheese, yum!

Serve as a main dish or side, and enjoy!
