I combine white potatoes with steamed cauliflower to drive down the calories and carbs in this comfort food favorite.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 12 servings
  • • 5 medium russet potatoes (skin on), cut into chunks
  • • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • • ¾ cup milk (skim, 1%, almond, or any other preferred milk)
  • • ¼ cup whipped butter
  • • 1½ teaspoons Kosher salt
  • • ¾ teaspoon ground black pepper

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the potato chunks, and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes or until fork tender. Drain the potatoes and transfer them to a large mixing bowl.

While the potatoes are cooking, microwave the cauliflower florets with 2 tablespoons water on high power for 10 minutes, or until soft. Drain the cauliflower and add to the bowl with the potatoes.

Add the milk, butter, salt and pepper, and mix with a handheld electric mixer, food processor, immersion blender or by hand until smooth and creamy (or if you prefer, you can leave a chunky texture).

Optional: Add additional preferred herb, seasonings, and toppers, such as Parmesan cheese, light sour cream, chives, hot sauce, or minced chipotle peppers.
