Creamy Mashed Cauliflower

If given the choice I would eat mashed potatoes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon snack, midnight snack...you get the idea. Besides the fact that I would be in a constant food coma if I did such a thing, I would probably turn into a potato myself, and that doesn't sound very attractive. I found a great alternative using steamed cauliflower, where you can adjust the taste as necessary and you still get to enjoy the creamy comfort food without turning into a spud yourself.

This recipe is only 60 calories for each 3/4 cup serving with 3.7g protein, 8.6g carbs, 4.2g fiber, and only 2.4g fat.

Steam or boil the caulflower florets and garlic cloves until soft. Drain well. Add the yogurt, salt, pepper, and puree until smooth with a hand blender or blender.
