I hate cauliflower, but I'll eat it if it's disguised well enough!
Make and share this Cheesy Smashed Potatoes & Cauliflower recipe from Food.com.
- 3 small potatoes, cut into chunks
- 1 cup cauliflower floret, bite-sized chunks (can use fresh or frozen)
- 1⁄4 cup light sour cream
- 1 cup light cheddar cheese, shredded
- Place potatoes and fresh cauliflower florets in a pot and cover with water (if using frozen florets, don't add them yet!).
- Bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender (if using frozen cauliflower, add them 10-15 minutes into cooking time).
- Drain vegetables and return to pan. Add sour cream and mash until vegetable mixture is light and fluffy. Stir in cheese until it melts.
I actually had this recipe in one of my Kraft Food & Family magazines. It is really good, and hard to tell that it's cauliflower. I am not a huge fan of mashed potatoes, and this is a bit healthier anyway, so it's perfect! I didn't have sour cream, so I just used 1/4 cup fat-free milk, and it worked fine. I made this to go with Mom's Best Ever Turkey Meatloaf.
Cheesy and creamy goodness. The cauliflower added a bit of a "hmm" factor, as when mashed really well into the potatoes, it is hard to detect exactly what the extra flavor is between the cheese and the potatoes. Sour cream makes them extra creamy :)
