Homestyle keto family dinners aren’t complete without sour cream and chive mashed cauliflower.
There are people who rave about mashed cauliflower, sometimes called caulimash. I’ve heard nothing but amazing reviews and a lot of people who say mashed cauliflower is better than mashed potatoes. When I started keto I raised my eyebrow at their opinion. There was no way cauliflower would be anywhere close to as good as mashed potatoes.
Then I wanted a homestyle dinner, so I decided to give it a try.
I can admit when I’m wrong.
Mashed cauliflower is amazing! It’s creamy, and if cooked right, it’s just as smooth as mashed potatoes. Although, the first time I made it my husband concluded my mashed cauliflower was lumpy. I concur. It was lumpy, but it was still oh so good, so it didn’t matter.
One of my favorite comfort foods pre-keto was sour cream and chives potatoes. I recreated this flavor with my mashed cauliflower and I’m glad I did. This is now a go to side dish recipe for our family. I’m content making it multiple times a week and have yet to get tired of it. Hopefully, I never will, however, I do need to make room on my plate for more new recipes.
