Mashed potatoes are a delicious side dish to many meals, but they may not always fit into a healthy eating plan. Cauliflower contains high levels of vitamin C and fiber, and is an easy, healthy alternative to potatoes. Try this cauliflower dish that mimics mashed potatoes. You’ll be amazed how good it is!
