[RECIPE] Mock Mashed Potatoes Using Cauliflower

I typically don't get home from my Skyrobics trampoline class until almost 9PM at night. I go straight from work to make it to the 7PM class. Since I am getting home so late these days, I am trying to limit my carb intake so at dinner, which resulted in me finally trying this dupe for mashed potatoes.

I saw Laura from Laura Must Lose Weight vlog her recipe and I was still skeptical when I watched it a few months ago. And if you've never tried this, then I'm sure you're going to still be skeptical after I tell you how great it was. I don't blame you. But I'll also tell you that you are missing out. This stuff is legit. I Instagrammed a photo of the mashed cauliflowers and I had a few requests for the recipe, so here you go. It's super easy to make.

You need:

  1. A head of cauliflower, chopped
  2. One ziploc steam bag (can be found where the oven bags are)
  3. 1/2 C of cottage cheese
  4. 1 clove of garlic minced
  5. salt and pepper to taste


  1. Put chopped cauliflower in ziplock steam bag and steam for 5 to 6 minutues or until soft
  2. Mix all ingredients in a blender and blend untill smooth
  3. Enjoy!


I served mine with zesty tilpia and sauteed mushrooms (I use a slight variation of that recipe). I didn't use oil for any of this, just fresh lemon and lime juice, salt, pepper and mrs. dash original seasoning. BAM.
