Fauxtatoes vs. Potatoes!

by SaraSolomon - April 13th, 2015

OMG! You have to try my Cheesy Garlic Mashed Fauxtatoes!

I made mine with a secret ingredient! Cauliflower! Oh, and I swear you cannot taste the cauliflower!

Compared to conventional mashed potatoes, an equal portion of my fauxtatoes are:

  • 62% less calories!

  • 73% less fat!

  • 70% fewer NET carbs!

  • Equally DELICIOUS!

NOTE: I provide Dairy-Free Substitutions in my Recipe!

Cooking Instructions


  • Cauliflower

  • 4 TBSP of chicken broth (no salt added or low sodium)

  • 1/8 cup of Daiya Dairy Free Mozzarella Style Shreds (or you can use 1 TBSP nutritional yeast)

  • 1 TBSP dehydrated onion flakes

  • A dash of garlic flakes

  • A dash of ground rainbow pepper corns (or just use black pepper)

  • 2 tsp of Molly McButter butter sprinkles. (Don't freak out! It's not dairy free, and if you don't like this product, then don't use it! At least you get the butter flavour from the PAM when roasting the cauliflower. Another option is to add more cheese and seasoning).


  1. Cook your Cauliflower (I recommend purchasing pre-cut/washed cauliflower florets in a convenient bag for easy microwave steaming).

  2. You can also bake your cauliflower in the oven.  This is not a dictatorship. Do whatever blows your skirt up. If you elect to bake 'em in the oven, then preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. (Note: My oven sucks like 17 vacuums, so your oven is probably better at 350 degrees).

  3. Wash and cut a head of cauliflower. This yields ~4 cups.

  4. Spray butter-flavoured PAM non-cook cooking spray in an oven-friendly pan.

  5. Add the cauliflower. Bake in the oven for ~30 minutes.

  6. Mash your Cauliflower by dumping the 4 cups of cooked cauliflower into a food processor.

  7. Blend it to start breaking up the huge cauliflower florets.

  8. Add the Flavour - You don't want your mashed potatoes to taste like cauliflower, do you? Hells no! So add flavour to the food processor.

  9. Puree the daylights out of this. I unloaded the dishwasher while mine was in the food processor.

  10. Eat and Enjoy!

NOTE: I personally prefer steaming my cauliflower in my skillet (just fill it with water and cauliflower and close the lid until the cauliflower is soft).
