Mashed Cauli-Taters

Mashed Cauli-Taters

I love potatoes, but they are one of the most-consumed foods in the US and most of us are getting way to many of them. However, many of the Cauli-Mash recipes out there call for boiling the cauliflower, which removes the nutrients from the veggie, along with the flavor and making them soggy. Enter: roasting! This helps caramelize the exterior of the cauliflower and really adds some amazing flavor.

I do recommend using a large food processor (Amazon affiliate) for this recipe.
