Hot or Cold Faux Mashed Potatoes

So I know this dish sounds like a nasty dieters mashed potato substitute, but I swear you will be surprised by the creaminess and depth of flavor. With only a few ingredients, this is the perfect dish to make on a Sunday to save as a side dish for meals throughout the week. It also tastes delish with the turkey chili recipe below - just scoop into a big boll and pile the chili right on top!

A bunch of fresh cauliflower
3 oz. nonfat greek yogurt
Splash of milk
3 cloves fresh minced garlic
2 teaspoons sea salt

Boil cauliflower until soft. Put cauliflower and the rest of the ingredients above into a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy, be sure to taste it and add more of the above ingredients if necessary to obtain the best flavor and consistency. Serve warm or cold with a dollop of more greek yogurt on top. Special thanks to my innovative foodie roommate Steph for introducing me to this healthy play on mashed potatoes!


  1. This sounds to easy to pass on. Do you really have to use sea salt?

  2. Sea salt adds texture and it isn't as "salty" as table salt. You can use regular table salt, just be sure to use less of it :)
