Trick the boys/men of the house into eating Cauliflower. I promise you this WILL become a staple in your house. We all know there are a lot of picky eater out there, me one of them! I’m not a huge fan of Cauliflower, never have been. BUT, I’ve really been giving a huge effort eating healthier and more quantities of vegetables lately.
You all know I do my best to stay away from Gluten and Dairy. I drink Unsweetened Almond milk with my protein powder when I do have a protein shake and I use it in place of milk in most of my recipes. So last night I had a head of cauliflower and I thought, rather than steaming it and eating it plain, I should try to create something better from it!
Here is what I came up with! To my surprise, these are my new staple!!
I am currently eating SIMPLE and many vegetables and no fat with carbs. Watching my timing and food combining, as well as only eating 3 times per day now. I am able to have these for dinner at night and I’m in love with them!
You’ll notice it says, Jalapenos are optional. IF you want a kick, go for the Jalapenos, and IF you don’t like flavor of Cauliflower, add Jalapenos. It gives a major kick but I personally like the mashed potatoes without, as I can taste the Cauliflower more in the regular version. Who would have thought Ashley’s taste buds would finally be growing up!
Enjoy Fierce Fighters!!
1 Head Cauliflower
1 small Yellow onion
2 Medium Red Potatoes
1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk, Plain
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp roasted garlic (optional…added soo much garlic flavor, it was amazing to mix that with the cauliflower flavor, they both stood boldly on their own)
OPTIONAL for heat, add 1/2 Jalapenos without juice
Steam Cauliflower that has been separated from its roots.
Put small yellow onion in water (or add tbsp. of olive oil..like I said, I’m not consuming fat together with carbohydrates, so I just put in water..also, omitting olive oil will cut some calories)and saute until soft.
Put Cauliflower, sauteed onion, chopped potatoes, Almond Milk, pepper, salt roasted garlic in food processor and blend until smooth. There will be a tiny consistency where you should be able to see red skin.
REMEMBER: JALAPENOS OPTIONAL ADD STRAIGHT TO EVERYTHING ELSE IF YOU ARE ADDING THEM IN.
Eat right away or put into container and save for week. This will be great for 3-4 servings….large ones:) I have not done the calorie count as of yet, but will add this when I complete it.
*Trust this dish as an amazingly healthy and sneaky way of getting your vegetables in a more traditional dish, but with no fats and healthy carbohydrates. Serve with lean protein:).
