Fit Tuesday – Cauliflower

Eating healthy is a choice….  and a VERY hard one if you like potatoes as much as I do.  Baked potatoes, french fries, mashed potatoes…  I like them any way and every way!  I have found my substitution to overloading on potatoes.  Cauliflower!!!!  Below are two AMAZING recipes for you to try.  These two recipes have helped me kick my potato habit and ultimately helped me live a healthier lifestyle.


 

Cauliflower Mash

Ingredients:

  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup of almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 head of Garlic, minced
  • Fresh chives, chopped
  • Salt & Pepper

Directions:

  1. Cut cauliflower into florets.
  2. Boil cauliflower until completely tender. (About 12 minutes)
  3. Melt coconut oil
  4. Add cauliflower, coconut oil, almond milk into a mixer (can use a blender if you do not have a mixer)
  5. Blend and add your garlic, chives, salt & pepper until it meets your taste!
  6. Serve immediately while hot

 

Roasted Cauliflower

Ingredients:

  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Olive oil
  • salt & Pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Oil a large baking sheet
  3. Cut cauliflower into florets.
  4. Toss florets with the minced garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. (I put it all into a large baggie and shake until the florets are covered)
  5. Spread the florets out into a single layer on your baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. Cook in the oven, uncovered, for approximately 30 minutes.  You want the top to be slightly brown before you remove them.
  7. Serve immediately!

I LOVE these with a little ketchup.  They taste like french fries!
