Creamy Cauliflower and Mashed Potatoes
Lightened-up Creamy Cauliflower and Mashed Potatoes is a healthier side dish, with half cauliflower and half potatoes. Velvety smooth and creamy with less carbs and no milk, sour cream, or butter.
Servings 6 servings (about 1/2 cup each)
- 1 lb potatoes, peeled and diced (about 3 cups; 2-3 potatoes, any variety -- I used red)
- 1 lb cauliflower florets (about 3 cups; 1 head cauliflower)
- 2 wedges Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Garlic & Herb Cheese
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- salt and pepper, to taste
- cooking liquid (water)
Boil or steam diced potatoes and cauliflower florets, separately or together, until very soft.*INSTANT POT: Pour 1 cup of water in bottom of pot. Place steamer basket inside. Add the potatoes and cauliflower. Cook on Manual, High Pressure, 6-7 minutes, Quick Pressure Release.
Remove cauliflower and potatoes from pot and SAVE THE COOKING LIQUID. Press vegetables through a potato ricer, mash with a potato masher, or beat with an electric mixer in a large bowl.
Mix in the Laughing Cow Cheese, minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste, and just enough of the cooking liquid to achieve the desired consistency. (I used about 2 Tbsp to 1/4 cup because my cauliflower had a lot absorbed a lot of liquid.) Enjoy!
BOIL: Cauliflower 12-15 minutes / Potatoes 15-20 minutes.
STEAM: Cauliflower 10 minutes / Potatoes 20 minutes.
