This Rosemary Garlic Mashed Cauliflower may be healthier, but tastes just as good as Mashed Potatoes! Perfect for Thanksgiving or any day of the year. Side dishes can be healthy while still being SO delicious!
When I first started cooking, which as you probably know was NOT long ago, I never imagined I’d be making Mashed Cauliflower someday. I never imagined I’d be making much other than Easy Mac and Lean Cuisine!! Over the past year and a half I’ve found my passion. All of a sudden I’m making Rosemary Garlic Mashed Cauliflower.
I was skeptical, I’ll be honest. But this healthy(er) side was creamy, delicious, and best of all, EASY. This will definitely be making its way to our Thanksgiving table! There will be enough non-healthy items there. I guess I could add just a few less fattening options!
