This foodie is excited that Thanksgiving is around the corner. I seriously can’t wait to get my grub on in my leggings. Yes, the turkey is the main attraction, but side dishes are equally as important. This tasty sweet potato and cauliflower mash recipe is both different and on the healthier side. It will surely be a hit.
- 2 pounds sweet potatoes
- 1 pound cauliflower florets
- 3 tbsp. milk of choice
- 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- Freshly chopped parsley for garnish
Directions: peel and cut sweet potato into 1 ½ inch chunks. In large pot with steam basket, steam sweet potato and cauliflower with 1 inch of water in bottom of pot. Vegetables will be ready in about 10 – 12 minutes, or when fork tender.
Place in large bowl and mash the sweet potato and cauliflower with the milk. Stir in the Greek yogurt, garlic powder, salt and pepper. If too thick, add more milk, until desired consistency is achieved. Place in blender until smooth. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve.
