**Please Note - The printable recipe card with detailed instructions, complete ingredient measurements, and nutritional information for making Cauliflower Sweet Potato Mashers is available at the end of this post.
The ingredient list:
- fresh cauliflower, cut into florets
- sweet potatoes
- chicken broth or stock
- salt and pepper
Why this recipe works:
My husband feels the same way about mashed potatoes as I do. He loves them.
The night I first made these cauliflower and sweet potato mashers, he couldn't say enough good things about them. When I asked him if he could or would eat these over regular mashed potatoes his resounding "YES" nearly knocked me off my chair!
With only four simple ingredients, these are a healthy and gluten-free way to eat your veggies and hide them from the kiddos all at the same time.
Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Mashers make you feel like you're indulging in something sinful, but you're not. Unless of course, you eat the entire bowl...not that I'd know anything about that! *wink*
Can these cauliflower sweet potato mashers be made with something other than chicken stock?
- If you'd like to turn this into a completely vegetarian side dish, feel free to use vegetable stock in place of the chicken stock.
- Or, why not go completely off the rails (in a good way of course), add coconut milk and turn them into a tropical delight?!!
- Boy, that sounds good, and now I'm excited to make these again for our next backyard BBQ or luau gathering!!
Can this side dish be made and frozen?
Yes! Just remember to stir it well several times as it reheats as mashed cauliflower does tend to be on the watery side.
