We always have mashed potatoes so adding cauliflower is a great combination. Cauliflower makes the dish more creamy, yummy and healthy. This is a vegan version of Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes. Try at home it’s most easiest recipe on earth even beginners can try them. We loved this at home along with some homemade french fries, basil garlic sticks and pasta with white sauce.
My mouth is salivating writing about this I love such kind of food. It’s easy plus tasty and everyone likes them back home. Mashed potatoes are great to make home I never buy them from outside. My hubby loves mashed potatoes, french fries, burgers and dinner rolls with butter.
Today I am going completely desi making rajma chawal and Indian chicken fry. As hubby isn’t fond of rajma so to pacify him making chicken fry. I love rajma chawal with some butter Or cream on it. Also will make some salad.
Coming back to Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes. You could make them for more healthy by adding some chives, herbs like basil, coriander, cilantro, rosemary etc. Instead of adding butter try adding olive oil which would be low fat and give a nice flavor. I haven’t added garlic but you could add some roasted Or burnt garlic which would leave a nice flavor again.
The list is endless use your own creativity to make simple dish to a creative and healthy one. Also spices like red chili flakes, oregano, pepper, paprika etc could be added. I have added pepper powder as I love pepper. To further make it green have added some finely chopped chives, chopped basil leaves and dried rosemary.
