Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a low-carb, antioxidant enriched, keto version of mashed potatoes. Unfortunately, mashed potatoes are not healthy as the starch causes blood sugar imbalances and potatoes are relatively low in nutrients. Cauliflower makes a great alternative as it is extremely high in antioxidants and cancer killing nutrients while being very low carb.
I like to use turmeric to add more antioxidants and you can choose to use coconut oil in replacement of the butter. Adding in more herbs and parsley adds more chlorophyll and antioxidants making this a superfood powerhouse.
My family makes this every week as one of our staple foods and we LOVE IT!! It is also really good for Thanksgiving as it truly tastes like mashed potatoes and takes away the desire for that starchy American traditional comfort food.
