Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Cauliflower has quickly become a staple vegetable in our house. It has replaced potatoes, rice and even flour for pizza crust! I love how versatile this veggie is, adapting to any flavor that you add to it.

With Thanksgiving approaching I want to share with you how you can bring this wonderful vegetable into your kitchen and onto your dinner table. Get rid of the tubers that are loaded with starch and heavy on the carbs and replace them with this carb friendly and clean eating alternative!
