One of my biggest challenges on Weight Watchers has been to cut way down on starches and carbohydrates. I’m one of those people who will always take savory starches over sweets. Offer me a bowl of ice cream OR French fries and I will take the fries every time.
So, I decided to try Mashed Cauliflower. There actually are people out there who claim that they taste just. like. mashed. potatoes. Umm, no, they don’t. They taste like mashed cauliflower, which is good, but they are thinner and less starchy in consistency.
So, I decided to tweet things a bit to get them to meet my starch-loving tastes. I found that by adding just one potato to the cauliflower, I was able to thicken the consistency without adding too much to the Weight Watchers Smart Point total.
I have served these a number of times – they even hold up well to gravy/sauce from the main dish, almost as well as 100% potatoes. My husband actually prefers these and my boys haven’t realized yet that they are mostly Cauliflower with just a wee bit of potato.
Cauliflower is low in calories and carbohydrates and high in Vitamin C – in other words, it is good for you. Give these a try and let me know what you think.
