Cauliflower mash is a popular side dish I often serve with many of my entrees. A Paleo take on traditional mashed potatoes. Surprisingly, it’s difficult to differentiate the taste between the two. So why not eat the less starchy and low carb mash! I found this article that explains in detail the nutritional difference between potatoes and cauliflower. I’ve encountered many cauliflower mash recipes, but have not found one I really love. So my mission was to create a light tasting and simple recipe that would really compliment any main dish.
