Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Miracle Mash
Swapping out potatoes for cauliflower is a simple change that makes a dish much healthier without losing any flavor. In this easy and delicious recipe from Rocco DiSpirito, cauliflower proves to be a worthy substitute for potatoes. The addition of Greek yogurt adds a delightful creaminess and tang to the mash.

Gluten Free
Serves Two

2.5 cups cauliflower, roughly chopped
1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
salt & pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray it with cooking spray.

2. Spread the cauliflower out on prepared baking sheet. Season with salt & pepper, to taste. Top the cauliflower with another sheet of foil, and roll up the edges to form a sealed packet.

3.  Roast the cauliflower for 20 minutes. Remove the top foil, and continue roasting the cauliflower until it is tender, another 16-20 minutes.

4. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the cauliflower with the yogurt. Puree until smooth. Season with additional salt and pepper, if necessary.
