The "mashed potatoes" in this post were made from CAULIFLOWER! Dr. Davis explains that while potatoes contain none of the "evil grain", they do cause extreme blood sugar rises. However, follow this recipe from his book (Page 201, in the "Wheat Belly Cookbook"), and you too will agree that it makes cauliflower "taters" taste better than potatoes; seriously!
1 Large head of cauliflower (cut into florets)
2 Ounces of cream cheese
2 Tablespoons real butter (we use Omish)
1/4 Teaspoons sea salt (I think we added a touch more - but taste before the final mix)
Place a steamer basket in a large pot with 2" of water. (We simplified this by boiling the cauliflower in a small amount of water while covered. Make sure it's tender!) When tender, we took it off the heat and added the other ingredients and began mixing. Mix until "mashed potato smooth".
Dr. Davis calls for a food processor to do the blending, but ours isn't the best in the world, but believe me our method works!
We served ourselves with a thick pork chop, the cauliflower, I mean potatoes, and some green beans.
If you're counting, this has152 calories, 5g protein, and 11g of carbs.
You'll never go back to plain ol' potatoes!
