Mash Cauliflower is a wonderfully easy and nutritious dish. Not only does it have less calories and low-carb, the benefits include a healthy dose of fiber (over 2.5 grams per 1 cup), B6, vitamins C and K, folate and manganese. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids.
We all have our comfort food cravings. I usually carb binge on mash potatoes. Unfortunately, the calories of the creamy taters’ are off the charts!
Since I’m on a healthy diet, I’m ditching the high-calorie meals. Fortunately, by making a simple substitution, I can still enjoy a similar taste & texture with a much lower calorie price – using cauliflower.

You will love this mash potato hack! If you follow my recipe, a cup of Cauliflower Mash is around 60-70 calories (without milk, extra calories, or carbs). It’s so easy to make and tastes good! Kids would love this recipe too.
You can also add roasted garlic or drizzle a little bit of roasted sesame oil for flavor.
