I have been buying cauliflower mash potato from Trader Joe’s for quite some time. This week, I decided to perfect my own Instant Pot Cauliflower mashed potatoes.

 

 

CAULIFLOWER Mash Potatoes

Cauliflower is an amazingly nutritious veggie that my family does not like on its own. I get it because it smells funny and I am not that big of a fan myself. I have to fool my mind into thinking it is something else. This cauliflower casserole makes me forget I am eating cauliflower. I recently made this delicious Cauliflower Dessert Rice Pudding recipe to mask the flavor. Don’t miss the Ultimate Kitchen Tool and Equipment Buying Guide.

 

Let’s talk about why you should be eating cauliflower even if you don’t love it. It has cancer-fighting properties. It contains something called sulforaphane, a sulfur compound that has been shown to kill cancer stem cells, thereby slowing tumor growth. According to the National Cancer Institute:Indoles and isothiocyanates have been found to inhibit the development of cancer in several organs in rats and mice, including the bladder, breast, colon, liver, lung, and stomach.”

Cauliflower is an essential source of dietary fiber for digestive health. High fiber diets are supposed to help lower cholesterol. Most of us need more nutrients in our body to function better. Eating cauliflower regularly is a simple way to get these much-needed nutrients into your body. For instance, one serving of cauliflower contains 77 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. It’s also a good source of vitamin K, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, magnesium, phosphorus, fiber, vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium, and manganese.

    I’m definitely putting this on the menu! We need a cauliflower mash recipe for Dad who’s coming to dinner sometime soon. He’s low carb and this would be perfect.
