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!
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!
