  • Cauliflower Smush

    I think this might be my husband’s favorite veggie dish (he named it, too). It’s a good substitute for mashed potatoes.

    Cauliflower Smush
    Serves 4 (side dish)

    24 oz. cauliflower florets
    1/4 cup chicken broth
    1 tablespoon butter
    1/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt
    dash of hot sauce
    salt and pepper to taste

    1. Combine the cauliflower and chicken broth in a microwave-safe dish and microwave on high for 7 to 8 minutes, until very soft.
    2. In a food processor fitted with the blade, combine the cauliflower and remaining liquid, butter, yogurt and hot sauce. Blend until the mixture is smooth. Taste and season with salt and pepper as desired. Blend again. Serve warm.


    1. OMG, I love that dish. I saw it on Rachel Ray or something. It’s a good low carb thing too.

    2. Yup, it’s a very popular low carb dish – I think I’ve seen a dozen different versions but I love my own the best :)
