Mock Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I love potatoes...and starches and carbs...but my healthy diet doesn't love them as much.

I saw this on pinterest awhile back and finally was brave enough to try it.

Mock Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Why are they called Mock?  Because they aren't potatoes at all.  It is made out of cauliflower.

It was actually quite tasty!

Step 1- Pour two 16 oz cans of chicken broth (or you can just use water) into a pot.  Clean and cut cauliflower into small pieces and boil it in the broth for about 5-8 minutes.

 Step 2- Strain.

 Step 3- Add garlic and then proceed to mash.  We added a little bit of milk to it like you would regular home made mashed potatoes.

It was actually really, really good! I was surprised!  We had this with a pork loin and salad for dinner.  This will definately be added into my meal plans, as it is a very healthy alternative to eating regular potatoes all the time!  I think next time I will be a bit adventurous and add more spices to it!
