Recipe: Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes with Mushroom Gravy

By Ritamarie Loscalzo


balance blood sugarThis is a great alternative to traditional potatoes. Potatoes are high glycemic and not appropriate for those with blood sugar imbalances. Cauliflower is loaded with nutrients and antioxidants and is a good source of cancer-fighting sulforaphane.  I made this last year for Thanksgiving, and no one could tell which were mine and which were the “real” thing.

Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes


  • 1-2 heads of cauliflower
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon flax or coconut oil
  • salt to taste


  1. Steam cauliflower until tender.
  2. Blend until smooth – possibly in small batches depending on size of blender.
  3. Place in serving bowl and add coconut and or flax oil and salt to taste.

Optional extras: garlic, chives, black pepper, or other herbs. Use whatever flavors you typically use on mashed potatoes.

Top with mushroom gravy or eat as is.

The mushroom gravy and this recipe is adapted from my Thanksgiving Feast e-Book.
