Ideal Protein Recipe: Steak & Magic “Mashed Potatoes”

Looking for an alternative to high carb mashed potatoes; the same great taste without the high carbs? Look no further than this recipe! What looks like naughty mashed potatoes is really a cauliflower surprise!

Ingredients:
Cauliflower (Want a more convenient option? Use frozen bags!)
2-4 tsp olive oil
1 oz milk (From your morning milk allowance)
Sea Salt + Black Pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder or fresh crushed garlic (to taste)

Optional: White Pepper and Herb Salt (like Mrs Dash or Herbamare)
Optional: 2 tsp horseradish (It gives a little kick and helps make the cauliflower taste change into a more rounded gourmet mashed potato flavor)
Optional: 1/8 to 1/2 tsp Chili powder (Use Indian chili powder for the best taste. Found at most Asian markets)

Directions
1. Roast cauliflower until cooked at 200-210 C for about 10-15 minutes depending on your oven. You can also boil it, but the taste will not be as rich as roasting. I recommend roast!
2. Add 1 oz nonfat milk to a blender or food processor
3. Add in the cauliflower and smash it down with a fork.
4. Add sea salt/ pepper to taste. (I use herbamare spicy, white pepper, black pepper, and rose pepper)
5. Add 1-2 teaspoons olive oil
6. Add other spices as desired.
7. If available, add 1 teaspoon imitation butter flavor
8. Blend until desired consistency. Both creamy and chunky versions are both excellent.
9. Add fresh parsley for garnish

Served with a fiery grilled eggplant (eggplant, olive oil, habañero tabasco, and indian chili with sea salt) covered with sliced paprika and rosepepper steak (Lehtipihvi) in photo.

You can also use broccoli for a different taste

Want a spicier version?  Add 8 – 12 jalapeños. Serve with iced Peppermint Tea to cut the heat.
