Do you wish there was a healthy alternative to mashed potatoes? Well, your prayers have been answered. Smashed cauliflower is just as creamy and delicious—with way fewer carbs. Simply trim a head of cauliflower into small florets, then boil it in a pot of salted water for about 10 minutes, or until tender. Save ¼ cup of the water, then drain the cauliflower before throwing it into a food processor. Next, add 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and the reserved water; puree until smooth. (Don't worry if you don't have a food processor. You can still make this recipe the old-fashioned way—that is, using potato masher.)
