Cauliflower Mash is a surprisingly delicious, nutrient-dense alternative for mashed potatoes.

It may even save you time, since while most of the process is pretty similar, there’s no potato peeling prep involved.

You can easily make the mash taste more like traditional mashed potatoes by blending in grass-fed butter and a little bit of organic milk. (Fun game: Serve it on Thanksgiving and see if anyone notices the difference!)

But we love this version that uses tangy Dijon and just a little bit of Parmesan.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Cauliflower is full of fiber and vitamin C and is less carby than white potatoes, and the Dijon adds flavor without messing with the nutrition value.
