Looks like mashed potatoes, has the creaminess and texture of mashed potatoes and even tastes like mashed potatoes. But it’s not mashed potatoes!

Cauliflower is high in fiber, Vitamin C, folate and contains many phtyochemicals common in plants that are members the cabbage family. Cauliflower is also high in sulforaphane, a nutrient known to have anti-cancer benefits. All this and almost no carbs! So indulge with absolutely no guilt!

What are the three ingredients? Cauliflower, butter (or clarified butter or ghee) and chicken stock, homemade of course! Oh… and some sea salt and freshly ground pepper…ok, so I guess that makes  five ingredients…unless you count all the ingredients in the homemade chicken stock…then make that Fourteen Ingredient Pureed Cauliflower. 

Homemade chicken stock gives this cauliflower a rich and more savory flavor, and it’s good for you. If you don’t make your own, simply use store bought it will still be delicious!
