Mashed Po-what?

Who doesnt love Mashed potatoes?! Well, when trying to lose weight- mashed potatoes can hold you back from shedding the pounds. So heres an alternative- taste isnt exact but pretty darn close!

Cauliflower Mashers

1 Head of Cauliflower
2 Tbsp. real butter- or omega 3 butter
1/4 cup fat free half and half- or skim milk
Garlic Powder to taste

1. Chop the Cauliflower into golf ball size pieces
2. Boil in a pot for 20-30 minutes until extremely tender
3. Drain and pour into a bowl
4. Add the rest of the ingredients, then use a mixer until almost smooth
5. You may haveto add a little more of the half and half until potatoe-like texture

I usually eat this side dish with a rotisserie chicken (boughten or home cooked) and asparagus or green beans. It makes the feeling of a Thanksgiving Dinner!!
