Healthier Mashed Potato

potatoHere is an alternative to the high fat and high calorie mashed potato that you can easily whip up and have leftovers for the week. I can’t tell you how many people tell me they do no eat potatoes because they are too many carbs or bad for them. You do not have to avoid potatoes to keep your waistline in check. Just make sure you are eating the appropriate serving size and its a healthier version. This one has hidden cauliflower to make it less calories per serving. I love cauliflower because it is loaded with fiber! So, it will fill you up quickly and has a lot of Vitamin C to keep your immune system well!

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs organic Yukon gold potatoes
  • 3/4 of a head of cauliflower or (4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp.Kerrygold grassfed butter
  • 1/8 tsp Himalayan salt
  • pepper to taste

Wash and peel potatoes and then cut up. I buy the small potatoes so I cut them in half. Wash and cut cauliflower and cut into similar size as potatoes. Bring a pot of water to a boil. I add in a steam basket to the top with potatoes and cauliflower. Cook for around 25-30 minutes or until you can easily slide a fork into the potato. Pour into a bowl and begin mashing! If you like your potatoes super smooth, you can use a mixer but I like to use the masher. Mix in other ingredients. 8 Servings.
