Cauliflower Mash

chicken sausage and cauliflower mashed potatoes

We've had a little South Beach action going on around here.  It's necessary when you come to the states and pack on a few pounds. :)  I've really enjoyed the meal plans and recipes presented in the book.  I feel like we eat pretty healthy but my weakness is carbs!  I love them!  Especially hot, homemade bread.  After two weeks of no carbs or sugar, I'm slowly working some carbs back in.  Not many, though.  It's all in moderation. 

One of the alternatives I've really enjoyed is cauliflower mash.  I actually don't cook cauliflower much but these are great!  Just steam cauliflower.  When it is soft, blend it in a blender or food processor with a small amount of butter, a small amount of fat free half and half, and salt and pepper to taste.  I can't say that my family loves these as much as me, but at least they eat all that is put on their plate.  It's just another way to get more fiber and vitamin C that are found in these white trees!  And did you know that cauliflower has an anti-cancer compound that is released when it is chopped or chewed?  Interesting...

I plan on trying this recipe! Next week, when I can add butter---I'm doing no carbs too for a yeast free eating plan. Thanks!

I'll totally try this!! I gained some... ahem... girth upon re-entry to the land of blizzards, cheese and bread (and all things fried) but I've never looked into South Beach. Can you tell me what it means for you family? (What do you eat a lot of and have they liked it/has it been beneficial??)

Thanks for the new idea~G

I love this and ate it often when I was on low carb. I used to put a little bit of bacon bits for some more flavor.
