Let it snow - Week 3 - Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Welcome to my Let it Snow series! After a very indulgent Christmas holiday, I have decided that one of my new year resolutions is to cut back even more on carbs. I have discovered a wonderful vegetable which can replace higher carb options in many recipes - Cauliflower! It's amazing the delicious dishes one can make with cauliflower and skip other higher carb options. Cauliflower is low in carbs and calories, and rich in vitamin C, iron, calcium, vitamin B-6, magnesium, potassium and dietary fiber. This week I am sharing my recipe for Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes. Enjoy!!!
