Posted on: October 13, 2008

Iam a great fan of low carb recipes, they keep you light and are wholesome to the core. This is another one of Fran Mccullough’s famous low carb recipes. It is a wonderful substitute for all those who love mashed potatoes. It tastes delicious and is extremely low in calories. Try it..a potato lovers dream.


1 head of cauliflower

1 teaspoon butter

1 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon mixed herbs (thyme, oregano, basil, cilantro)

 Salt to taste


Cut out the cauliflower florets and steam them till mashed or overdone. It is a good idea to steam the cauliflower instead of boiling them as a lot of nutrients are lost in the water while boiling. Mash the cauliflower with a wooden spoon till it resembles mashed potatoes. Heat butter in a non-stick pan and add the cauliflower.Add salt, pepper, mixed herbs and mix well. Cook till slightly brown. Serve hot garnished with spring onions.

 Serves 2
