This recipe is a new favorite in our home. When my husband tried these mashed potatoes for the first time, he hardly believed me when I told him I had added cauliflower.
Healthy Homemade Mashed Potatoes
- 1-2 cups cauliflower, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 4 medium sized potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
- Butter and milk
- Sour cream optional
- Salt to taste
Using a steamer basket, steam potatoes on the stove for approximately 10 minutes. Add cauliflower, and steam until potatoes and cauliflower are soft.
Transfer cooked potatoes and cauliflower into a mixing bowl, and mash, adding desired amounts of butter, milk, and sour cream. (I came close to purchasing a potato masher but decided that my pastry cutter works well enough.)
Mash until desired consistency is reached, and add salt to taste.
I recommend starting with 1 cup of cauliflower and working your way up, based on how well your family enjoys the first batch.
I use 2-3 Tablespoons of butter and 3-5 Tablespoons of milk, but feel free to use more or less, depending on personal preference.
