Coconut Cauliflower Mash

Prep Time and Cooking Time
Prep time: 2 minutes Cooking time: 15 minutes

If you like mashed potatoes but worry about the high carb content, worry no longer. Mashed cauliflower tastes just like mashed potato, but has far fewer calories and packs a bigger nutrient punch. Included in this recipe is a crunchy twist to mashed potatoes by adding cashews.

3 cups cauliflower (rough chopped)
1/4 cup cashews (crushed)
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 pinch salt
1 pinch pepper
1 pinch cinnamon

Add all the ingredients to a pot and turn on medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Simmer for 15 minutes and then remove from heat.

Purée in a blender or food processor until smooth. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time if necessary to get the mixture moving.

Variations and Options
For additional flavoring, try adding your favorite herbs to the mash. Paprika, safflower, or coriander are awesome spices to try in this recipe.
