One of the big temptations at most holiday tables is mashed potato. Here is a solution so convincing that your family may not even notice! Puréed cauliflower has the same texture as mashed potatoes. It tastes great as a side dish or as a late-afternoon snack. Cauliflower is an excellent source of B vitamins, vitamin C and fiber. By serving this instead of mashed potatoes, you not only reduce the potential for inflammation, but also slash calories (1 cup/250 millilitres of mashed potato contains 200 calories whereas the same serving of mashed cauliflower contains 100 calories).
