Delicious, creamy and without the carbs garlic mashed fauxtatoes. You may be wondering what fauxtatoes are? Well, it is mashed potatoes without the potatoes 🙂 Silky smooth, fluffy,  lightly flavoured with garlic and super creamy without adding cream. What I love about this recipe, it is made simply using only 5 ingredients, and it takes only 15 minutes to make. This is a keto friendly recipe, so if you are following a low-carb diet, this recipe is for you!

Once you try this garlic mashed fauxtatoes dish, you may never go back to traditional mashed potatoes. Healthier, lighter, low-carb, packed with flavour and super creamy…nothing to think about here. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 large cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 1/8 tsp. GF ground nutmeg (optional)
  • Himalayan salt and GF ground black pepper
  • Optional toppings; fresh herbs, chives, melted butter
  • Instructions

  • Pour enough water into a large pot so that you have about 1-inch in the pot
  • Bring the water to boil, add garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and cauliflower and cover the pot. Steam the cauliflower over medium-low heat until tender about 8 - 10 minutes. Drain well and pat with paper towels to remove as much liquid as you can. This is very important to get creamy, silky texture
  • Place cauliflower with cream cheese and nutmeg into a food processor or use an immersion blender and puree until smooth
  • Season with salt and pepper and top with herbs, chives and or melted butter
