Mashed Cauliflower {Gluten Free | Dairy Free}

While we LOVE regular mashed potatoes, mashed cauliflower can give you extra cruciferous vegetables in your diet + is a friendly candida version. Aka – you aren’t feeding any GI overgrowths if you have them! In our picture, we topped with a dollop of grass-fed butter, but feel free to leave this out. It’s SUPER tasty even without the butter {especially if you can’t do dairy!}

When you make this deliciousness, don’t forget to tag us on Instagram @thrivalnutrition, so we can see your creation + share it!
