Mashed Faux-Tato

Do you miss mashed potatoes? I bet you do because I know that I do. There is nothing like the creamy smooth and buttery taste, until now. I present to you, for your Thanksgiving table and any other night for that matter, a perfectly delicious and creamy mashed faux-tato. I hope you enjoy.

Mashed Faux-Tato


2 cups potatoes, 1/2 " dice
6 cups cauliflower, cut into like sized pieces (one large head)
3 Tbsp. unsalted butter
2 Tbsp. reduced fat sour cream
1 Tbsp. chives
salt and pepper

Cut potatoes and cauliflower into equal sized pieces and add to a large pot of cold salted water. Bring to boil on high heat, reduce heat slightly and cook until vegetables are tender, about 30 to 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain and return vegetables to pot and heat for a minute or two to remove any excess water remaining. Remove from heat and mash, run through a food mill or potato ricer. Add the butter, sour cream and chives and blend well. Season with salt and pepper to taste or as allowed. The cauliflower keeps the mixture moist so there is no need for any additional liquids.
