Put Your Mind To It, Go For It

Miracle Mashies

*From Hungry-Girl*

This recipe mixes cauliflower and potato to deliver a mashed potato taste and texture with a lower calorie count.

1 large (about 13-oz.) potato
3 cups cauliflower florets
3 tbsp. fat-free half & half (or 1/4 cup 1% milk)
1 tbsp. light butter (45 calories per tbsp)
1/4 tsp. salt
pepper and additional salt, to taste
Optional: 1/2 tsp. crushed garlic

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. While waiting for the water to boil, peel and cube the potato.

Once water is boiling, add peeled potato cubes and cauliflower. Wait for the water to return to a boil, and then reduce heat to medium. Cook for 15 – 20 minutes (until potatoes and cauliflower are very tender).

Remove the pot from heat and strain out all of the water. Transfer contents to a large bowl, and add half & half, butter/buttery spread, salt, and (if you like) crushed garlic. Mash it all together with a potato masher, until completely blended. Season to taste with pepper and additional salt. Enjoy!

Makes 5, 1/2 cup servings.
