Combining Mashed Potatoes and Cauliflower

Q:

What do you think about combining cauliflower and mashed potatoes? I know it is supposed to be healthier for you, but when I put the two together it was very bland. Any suggestions?

A:

The cauliflower option is a popular way to add in some different flavors to mashed potatoes, especially for those who like both but want to keep the potato portion reasonable. The net result often needs some spice. Here is a recipe that does just that; adds in crunch and spice to perk up the potatoes and is a wonderful dinner meal with chicken. Try it!
