Cream cheese mashed potatoes are a weakness of mine. I love them for a special treat, but let’s face it – with all that butter and cream and cheese, we can’t eat them with every meal (as much as we might like to)! When I created this fast and easy cauliflower puree, it was with those luscious cream cheese mashed potatoes in mind. I wanted a smooth, rich texture and a creamy taste to sub in for the real deal. I think you’ll be pleased with the result – high in fiber, protein, and vitamins B and C, this low calorie cauliflower puree can stand in for those spuds on my table anytime. Oh, and did I mention there’s less than one gram of fat per serving?
I hope you enjoy this delicious addition to your healthy ISO lifestyle!
