Looking for diabetic Thanksgiving side dishes? These fake-out mashed potatoes will fool all your family and friends. Not only are they cheesy and delicious, but they're good for you, too!

What You'll Need

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Place the cauliflower florets in a large pot and add just enough water to cover.
     
  2. Cover and cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Drain and place in a medium bowl.
     
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and beat with an electric mixer until mixture is well combined.

Note

  • For a quick-and-easy baked version, add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and 4 beaten eggs to the mixture and place in an 8-inch square baking dish that has been coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F. oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until golden and set.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

How interesting! I've never tried a mashed veggie other than potatoes, so this seems super fun!

Great tasting alternative to regular mashed potatoes........and so healthy too. I Have made this with frozen cauliflower also.....just reduce liquid by half!

Made this for the 1st time last night.Unbelievably good. T substituted 16 oz frozen cauliflower for the fresh and reduced the milk to 1 tsp. Fantastic!
