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


  1. Steam the broccoli and cauliflower until very tender. Reserve some of the cooking liquid.
  2. Mash it with a potato masher.
  3. Season with Salt and Pepper.
  4. 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!
