This cauliflower whip is rich in B vitamins, vitamin C and fibre, while being low in calories. One cup of mashed potatoes usually contains 200 calories or more while this low calorie alternative has 100 calories per cup! Enjoy!

o ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

o 1 tsp sea salt
o 1 tsp fresh lemon juice

Curry option:
o 2 cloves garlic, mincedo ½ tsp cumin

1. Cut the cauliflower into florists. Place them in a large pot with water. Cover and heat on high
2. Steam for 6-8 minutes or until soft when pierced with a knife. Uncover and remove with heat
3. Transfer the cooked cauliflower, spices, garlic, salt, lemon juice and olive oil to a food processor or blender and puree until very smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl using a rubber spatula. Can be served hot or cold.
