P3 Creamy Mashed Cauliflower Recipe

Have you been craving mashed taters the entire time you’ve been on your round? Well, if you’ve survived P2 and made it to P3, here’s a legal substitute!! Go slowly with it and watch for reactions (as with any new re-introduction) – especially because there is dairy in the recipe. If you do well with this, it could also be a great alternative to potatoes for that big Thanksgiving meal. It will be here before we know it!

1 head of cauliflower — cut into florets
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp white pepper
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp onion powder

Divide a head of cauliflower into florets that are all roughly the same size.
Steam cauliflower pieces over boiling water (15 to 20 minutes), or until the cauliflower is tender. Drain the cauliflower and toss it in a bowl of ice water to bring the cooking process to a screeching halt.

When the cauliflower has cooled, put the florets in a food processor along with 1/2 cup of water. Puree the cauliflower on high speed until smooth, but with some very small pieces of cauliflower remaining in the mix for just a bit of texture.

Pour all of the pureed cauliflower into a medium sauce pan.

Add the cream, salt, white pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder to the cauliflower and stir. Set the saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring often, for 5 to 10 minutes, or until thick.

    I had been with another company several years I did
    Manage to keep the weight off, but when it started fluctuating I didn’t get any support at all and they started selling other things along with it,
    The support group here that was created, is so helpful as well as the incredible knowledge of the Admin team! You don’t want us to just buy your product you want us to be healthy. You found ways to make it easy and even fun! Who in the world would ever say dieting is fun! It is life changing in its entirety!
    Thank you!
