Years ago when we stepped away from the typical Standard American Diet (SAD) I made this low-carb alternative to mashed potatoes for a holiday feast. This dish was placed on the table at a family get together and soon devoured by all! The creamy consistency of mashed cauliflower with butter and flavourful herbs was too delicious to resist.
This low-carb cauliflower mash recipe is pulled from the quintessential low-carb keto recipe book, The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook, which includes a number of cauliflower based recipes. There are many meal suggestions that mix and match different cauliflower dishes with various entrees, dips, sauces, and sides. A labor of love, this “training manual” to teach the essentials of successful low-carb, ketogenic cooking. Cauliflower is one important tool to learn how to use.
