Mashed Cauliflower "Potatoes" #Recipe @PegCochran

For me one of the hardest things about a low carb diet is giving up potatoes.  I love potatoes--fried, baked, scalloped, mashed, shredded...whatever.  I think I must have at least a drop of Irish blood in me somewhere!

But sometimes you've just got to stay on that low carb stint for awhile for your own good!  And mashed cauliflower makes a decent substitute for a pile of mashed potatoes.  Actually, even if you aren't on a low carb diet, you would enjoy these!



 Ingredients:
1 head of cauliflower
1 leek
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon butter
Pinch of nutmeg


Break the head of cauliflower into small pieces and clean and slice the white part of the leek.


Bring a pot of salted water to boil and add cauliflower and leek.  Boil until both are tender--approximately 15 minutes.


Drain vegetables and return to hot pan briefly to dry.


Place vegetables, cream, butter and nutmeg in food processor and puree.
