My daughter loves mashed potatoes! Who doesn’t? But, after going AIP, we couldn’t have white potatoes, I had to try my hand at Mashed Cauliflower aka “Fauxtato’s”!
OMG! I couldn’t believe it! They taste just like mashed potatoes! They totally passed the husband & daughter test!
Whether you are AIP, Paleo or just want a low carb option to potatoes, this is the perfect recipe. This Mashed Cauliflower Dish is a perfect alternative to Mashed potatoes for your Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Holiday Dinners.

- 1/2 – 1 Tbs. Garlic Powder to taste
- 1/2 – 1 Tbs. Onion Powder to taste

- sea salt to taste
- fresh chives for garnish (optional)
- Add water to a pot, like this one, for boiling or steaming cauliflower.
