If you’re a carb watcher, here’s a great alternative to mashed potatoes!
We like cauliflower and eat it fairly often. A friend gave me this recipe a while back, and I just got around to making it recently. You know ~ so many recipes, so little time…
Now that I’ve made it, and know how delicious it is, it will be on our dinner table often. The low calorie cheese is a perfect blend, and the caraway seeds add a distinctly sweet but tangy flavor. If you don’t care for caraway seeds, substitute dill, or omit it altogether. This is our new favorite side dish now!
Mashed Cauliflower w/Garlic Herb Cheese
4 cups cauliflower, fresh or frozen
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon seasoned pepper
½ teaspoon garlic, minced
½ teaspoon caraway seed
4 ounce package Alouette Light Garlic & Herb Cheese
½ teaspoon chopped chives, for garnish (I forgot)
Steam cauliflower until very tender.
Add remaining ingredients, except chives.
Mash with a potato masher.
Sprinkle chives over top for garnish and serve.
This was a hit for us and is “waist-friendly” too!
