Low Calorie Mash – mashed cauliflower that is! Served with smoked chicken and salad – yum!


Yes it doesn’t sound so great but it tastes amazing! Truly! Give it  a try!

Mashed Cauliflower


1 cauliflower

1 TBSP of Oil ( canola or olive)

1 medium sized onion

1 large garlic clove

2 -4 TBSP of non fat plain yogurt ( I like FAGE)

Parsley for decoration optional


Cook the cauliflower heads in boiling water with a dash of salt until soft. Drain and add to blender till smooth.

Fry the garlic and chopped onion in a pan until soft then add to the blender and blend with the cauliflower until smooth

Add the yogurt and blend all until smooth. Adjust the seasoning to add more salt and pepper if you like it.

Serve with chopped parsley on top if desired.

Truly delicious!

We served it with smoked chicken – which is also very easy – brine a raw organic whole chicken in 1 gallon of water with 1 cup of kosher salt and any wine or fruit juices or spices you enjoy – for at least 4 hours. Drain. Dry the chicken, spatchcock it (which means splitting it through the spine on one side to flatten it out) and place into an electric smoker with any kinds of wood chips you like – at 250 degrees for about 35-45 minutes a pound. It is that easy and delicious! We added a green salad to this which made a wonderful dinner for two!
