Weight Watchers Mashed Cauliflower: Deliciously Healthy

This Weight Watchers Mashed Cauliflower recipe is the perfect side dish that you can load up with some good fixins and still feel good about what you’re eating!

Not only am I always looking for a side dish that will fill me up and is good for me, but also it needs to taste good.

Of course, I know just as much as anybody else that eating fresh fruit, vegetables, lean proteins, and dairy is the healthiest way to eat.

Clearly, I LOVE to eat!

Admittedly, I sometimes LOVE to eat bad-for-you foods!

However, as long as I have a good arsenal of good-for-you recipes that also taste amazing, I don’t feel like I’m sacrificing.

Hearty, Stick-To-Your-Ribs Food

Typically, I go for hearty, stick-to-your-ribs food choices.

Sometimes, I go through periods of time (and to all of my female readers, I mean periods in two different ways), where I just want to literally stuff my face with something other than an apple or streamed broccoli.

Can I get an amen?

Healthy Side Dish

Indeed, I found a side dish that totally fits the bill for me health-wise, as well as stuff-my-face wise: Weight Watchers Mashed Cauliflower.

I’ve seen mashed cauliflower on restaurant menus and also in recipes online.

However, I’ve never tried making it at home until now.

In this case, I browsed some online recipes and modified them to find the right recipe for me.

In addition, the best part of this recipe is that it’s only 3 Weight Watchers Points Plus Value!

Hand Potato Masher

I really like using a Stainless Steel Wire Masher.

It’ll make mashing your cauliflower extremely easy to do!

It’s also great for mashing root vegetables, avocadoes, apples, and nuts.

And it’s dishwasher safe!

Super Easy To Make

Additionally, to add more ooomph to this wonderful side dish, you can add a tablespoon of fat free sour cream as a topping.

As a result, this only adds an extra 1/2 point to your Points Plus Value.

    • Hi Cher! Sorry I didn’t mention that in the post. You’ll only need the smallest package (not sure of the ounces). The cheese is used as a garnish. Thanks! Enjoy it ๐Ÿ™‚
