Creamy Smashed Cauliflower


by: Laura Dishes

With summer right around the corner my boyfriend has been begging me to cut back on carbohydrates. So in an effort to keep us both happy (insert smiley face) I decided to reinvent some of my favorite dishes using other, more healthful, ingredients. I recreated my most delicious garlic mashed potatoes using ever so healthy cauliflower and it was a huge success and plentiful-we had creamy smashed cauliflower all week!
