Mashed potatoes and gravy. I can’t remember a family holiday where that wasn’t one of the side dishes. And although I grew up hating potatoes (don’t judge), some forms of them have grown on me a bit as I’ve gotten older.
Ok, admittedly, I really only prefer french fries and hash browns, but still. They count as potatoes 😉 My whole family has been eating healthier so we can take care of our bodies better, and this recipe for garlic butter mashed cauliflower is a must-try for all of y’all that love garlic mashed potatoes!
- 1 head of cauliflower florets cut off
- 2 tbsp grass fed organic butter (Kerrygold)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 cloves of garlic diced
