Smashed Cauliflower-Potatoes
40 mins (prep 5, cooking 35)
3 ingredients
4 servings
Here is another vegetable side dish that I make once or twice a week. This recipe fits perfectly with phase 1 of The South Beach Diet and is a great alternative for those wanting to cut back carbs. Even my meat-and-potatoes husband enjoys this recipe. Cooking the cauliflower in milk is what makes this version unique (and tasty). Also, I have used a couple of bags of fresh cauliflower already cut up like they sell at Trader Joe's or 1 20 oz bag of frozen florets for convenience.
