That we need to eat healthier food is something that most of us can agree on. I am always searching for recipes that have tons of flavor, and are low calorie or low carb. With Creamed Cauliflower, I hit pay dirt!  Even the kids love this recipe and unless I tell them otherwise (and why would I do that?)they think it is mashed potatoes. Who knew that a vegetable that started out so …ahem…unattractive could become something so amazing!

Creamed Cauliflower

Creamed Cauliflower is one of those sides that compliments just about anything.  It is a great alternative to rice when served with stir-fry vegetables or chicken. Or  serve it with fried chicken and gravy. I know, I know we are going for healthy here.

We actually prefer this dish to real mashed potatoes. I probably should not tell you this…but my sons put gravy on them! They say it tastes the same.  Part of how I get that great flavor is to add  little onion powder, nutmeg and seasoned salt to the mix.
