Watching What I Eat: Bangers & Mash ~ Cauliflower Mock Mashed Potatoes
Saw this the other day. I've actually made this (the whipped cauliflower) before I had seen this article. If you've never tried food processed cauliflower, give it a try. It's pretty good. The site is pretty cool if you are substituting foods for your health.

Cauliflower "potato salad."

Edit. This was supposed to be in the recipes section.....woops.

I don't think I could do the Cauliflower potato salad but we have been using 1/2 cauliflower and 1/2 potato and mashing them for years. Last night I did the same only I used a turnip.

I often mash other veggies into my mash potatoes. Cauliflower taste superb, most root veggies are great mashed together ( carrots, parsnip); turnip, celery, kohlrabi, rutabaga even white beans Chopped, sauteed onions!
Great way to add some more veggies to meals ( or conceal them from picky kids ).

Another thing to do with cauliflower is to chop it fine, steam it and serve it as a substitute for rice. And I'll cut it into florets, toss with EVOO and S&P and roast at a high heat, turning a couple of times until it's lightly browned as a sub for fries with a meal.

I still love potatoes, but I also love subbing the cauliflower when I need to lower my intake of starches.

After you've cooked the veggies to a stage soft enough to mash haven't they already lost their nutritional value so what would be the point? I 'm really curious about this please.

On a tight budget cauliflower being close to $4.00 per head a family would be money ahead just using all potatoes. I love cauliflower but never thought to try this I'll have to do it soon last kid about to leave the nest.

Actually they haven't lost all the nutritional value, but yes, some of it. I doubt many of us would choose root vegetables at their height in prices, but when they are less expensive. An additional benefit to using other veggies is calories. Most are not quite as high in calories as potatoes. I am not saying potatoes are really all that high, but they do have more carbs as well. We did the turnip one again last night. Right now they are pretty inexpensive and add a completely different flavor to the mashed idea.

Potato and turnip mashed together are terrific. Use a parsnip instead and you get a totally different taste.

Love mashed mock cauliflower. I like to add a little parm cheese as well. I don't care too much that we do lose a little nutritional value since we tend to eat lots of veggies everyday. What I do like about it is the low carb factor. I am going to have to try the chicken sausage that is mentioned also in the link - thank you OP for posting!

I bought a head of cauliflower yesterday I'm want to try this mashed version.
