Most of us love mashed potato, but the fact is that potato is a high glycemic food that we would be better off avoiding. Even a plain, boiled potato can spike your blood sugar, and the more easily digestible mashed potato is even worse. Luckily, mashed cauliflower is a delicious, healthy alternative, and it even has a similar texture to the real thing!
One of the great things about cauliflower mash is that it easily takes on whatever flavor you add to it. This version uses rosemary, chicken stock and a little garlic, but you can flavor it however you like. You might also want to try it with ingredients like cheese, almond milk, chives, parsley, curry powder, paprika – the options are limitless.
