Cauliflower Potato Mash

Recipe Image: Cauliflower Potato MashMashed Potatoes have long been a well-loved side dish for any Thanksgiving dinner. I don’t think anyone loves all the carbohydrates and calories that come along with this creamy side dish, though. Well, save yourself that calorie dilemma this year by adding a little cauliflower and making this amazing recipe.  The cauliflower blends perfectly with the grass-fed butter and russet potatoes. In fact, you may never go back to old-fashioned mashed potatoes!


  • 16 oz. cauliflower
  • 8 oz. medium russet potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp grass-fed butter
  • Sea Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (optional)


  1. Peel russet potatoes and cut them in half lengthwise. 
  2. In a large pot cover potatoes with water and boil until tender. Note: make sure to lightly salt your water!
  3. Trim the florets from the cauliflower head.  This can easily be done by turning the head upside down, cutting around the core, through the branches to allow the florets to fall right off.  For larger florets simply cut them in half.
  4. In a saucepan over med. heat combine cauliflower, grass-fed butter, and a dash of salt. Cover.
  5. Stir cauliflower about every 5 minutes until cauliflower is tender enough to cut with a fork.
  6. Once the cauliflower is tender, uncover and turn heat to high.  Once most of the water has cooked off add your pepper and mash cauliflower with a potato masher until you reach your desired consistency.
  7. Add potatoes and garlic to the cauliflower, and mash again until desired consistency is reached. Best when served warm.

My relationship with Metabolic Research center began Feb 2010 when I weighed 182 lbs and had high blood pressure. I lost a total of 69 lbs and 72 inches. It has been 6 years and I continue to maintain my weight. I owe my continued success to MRC and all the great classes, especially yoga and the continued support that I receive from the staff. I have learned that food is nothing but fuel for the body and just as with your car you need to give it the right fuel in order for it to run proper. Follow the program and it is possible to loose the weight and maintain it. Nothing tastes as great as healthy feels!
