Broccoli and Cauliflower Mash (Low Carb)


This week I am playing tribute to some St. Patrick's Day favorites....

I love mash potatoes, but sometimes I feel like taking a big nap after indulging in them.  I decided to lighten my mash this time by forgoing the starchy potato and substituting it with broccoli and cauliflower.  This mash was fabulous and I didn't have the crash and burn after eating them.  So if you're going to eat some green food on St. Patrick's day... eat this.   Tomorrow you will see what I made to go with this fabulous mash. 

1 large head of cauliflower
4-5 cups broccoli florets
1 cup water (more as needed)
1 cup milk (or half and half)
2 Tbs butter
1 tsp granulated garlic
salt and black pepper to taste
1 cup cheddar cheese


 In a large pot or pan with a lid steam broccoli and cauliflower florets with one cup of water.  Check to see if water evaporates and add a little water at a time until both vegetables are tender enough to mash.

Next add butter, granulated garlic, milk, salt and black pepper.

Then add cheese and mash with a potato masher or a handheld blender for a more pureed mash.  Serve as a side.    Enjoy.
