Caulimash

December 18th, 2017 | no comments

One of the most important questions I ask myself when choosing a food to eat or recipe to prepare is: how long will this food keep me satisfied?

Unfortunately, when it comes to regular white potatoes, my answer is: not very long! Because of their high glycemic index, white potatoes have a strong impact on your blood sugar. This spike in blood sugar is followed by a subsequent dip, causing hunger to return sooner than it should.

Enter cauliflower mashed “potatoes”, or what I like to call Caulimash. 100% pure cauliflower, seasoned with garlic powder, sea salt, pepper, fresh chives, and ghee. The taste is pure heaven on earth! And, because cauliflower has a low glycemic index, it will not cause undesirable effects on your blood sugar. Bonus! An extra bonus…cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable, meaning it has the power to reduce inflammation in your body.

This past Thanksgiving I made this recipe of Caulimash for my family in place of traditional mashed potatoes and everyone loved it! In fact, my mother (who is VERY hard to please when it comes to food), asked if she could take some of the leftovers. Score! 🙂

Serve it alongside a nice piece of grass fed beef with some roasted carrots and I swear you’ll never miss the spuds. You could also prepare a little extra and add it to your scrambled eggs on Sunday morning. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
