COHEN DIET: Cauliflower and Broccoli Mash
One of the first things I start to miss on any low carb diet is mashed potatoes. We tend to eat it 2 to 3 times a week! And without it, it almost feels like something substantial is missing from every meal, which means I am always left wanting...usually wanting more food in the form of chocolates. But this mashed veggies comes very close to the real deal, especially if you leave out the broccoli.
- 1 cup cauliflower
- 1 cup broccoli
- salt and pepper
- Cooking liquid
- Steam the broccoli and cauliflower until very tender. Reserve some of the cooking liquid.
- Mash it with a potato masher.
- Season with Salt and Pepper.
- If the mixture is too stiff add some of the cooking liquid.
If you are not on the Cohen Diet then add some cream cheese and grated Parmesan for a real taste sensation!
