Sneaky Mashed Potatoes


The cauliflower in this yummy mashed potatoes recipe makes it more diabetic friendly, but you won't know the difference when you take a bite.


4.5 cups potatoes fresh, red, with skin on
6 cups cauliflower fresh, cut into florets
2 tablespoons Earth balance buttery spread whipped
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon salt or to taste


In a steamer basket set over boiling water, steam the cauliflower and potatoes together until soft, about 12 minutes. Place the hot vegetables and all remaining ingredients into a food processor, and puree on high for 15 seconds, until semi smooth. Move the mashed potatoes to a bowl, and use a hand held mixer to mix until you reach the desired consistency.


If you like garlic, use 1 minced garlic clove instead of garlic powder. You can garnish the potatoes with fresh parsley cut very small.
