Exercise your mind and body

Many years ago I made mashed cauliflower also known as Faux-Tatoes and my kids didn’t like them at all.  In fact it was really funny when my son said the mashed potatoes taste funny and thought they’ve gone bad as in rotten…HAHAHA!!

Last night for dinner I decided to try to make those rotten mashed potatoes again but this time I’ll add a few more in ingredients other than butter and salt.  As I was pureeing them in the food processor I was thinking of what I would normally put in mashed potatoes and that’s when the sour cream came to mind.  Then I added sharp cheddar cheese because you can’t go wrong with cheese!!! 

When I placed the bowl on the dinner table my kids were so happy to see mashed potatoes so they piled  it on their plates and after the first bite they’re like Hey mom this isn’t potatoes its that cauliflower again??  Well it’s really good!!!
I was so happy to hear that as they went in for seconds.  I almost had to hurry to get a serving for myself hahaha!!!

Hope you like it. 

Next time I make this I might try to make it as a casserole au gratin.
Coming soon !!
