Substituting Cauliflower for Potatoes

Substituting cauliflower for potatoes is such a simple and delicious way to add a load of nutrition to your diet, yet it’s so often overlooked.

Cauliflower is a member of the brassica family which contains the supper phytonutrient sulforaphane.  Brassicas support the immune system by being anti-inflammatory, aid in cancer prevention,  support liver detox and help get rid of bad estrogens.

By substituting cauliflower for the typical white potato, you are also helping to stabilize blood sugar which can often spike with starchy vegetables.

The kelp powder adds much-needed minerals and the garlic adds additional immune support. Flax oil provides healthy omega-3 fats.

The potatoes won’t even be missed!

Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes 



1/2 cup water  

1 1/2 cups cauliflower, lightly steamed  

1/4 teaspoon salt  

1/2 tablespoon coconut or olive oil  

1/2 teaspoon flax oil  

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder  

1/4 teaspoon kelp powder 



1. Blend steamed cauliflower together in a blender until smooth. Add water if necessary for creamy consistency. 

2. Season with salt, garlic powder, kelp powder, coconut oil, and flax oil.


Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes Variations :  

  • You could add a fresh garlic clove in the blender when you first do the steamed cauliflower and water.  
  • You could also stir in chopped scallions. 
  • Try different seasonings, such as a chai seasoning.  
  • This is great with a mushroom gravy over it.
