Some fun and festive ideas for holiday food that won't throw you off the nutrition track.
Stacy Keibler grew up eating hearty comfort foods, but these days, she tries to put a healthy twist on her favorite heavy dishes. With only 25 calories a cup
(as opposed to 120 for potatoes), cauliflower makes for a waste-friendly alternative in this garlicky mash.
1 Tbsp. olive oil
3 cloves roasted garlic (or 1 tsp. garlic powder)
1 head cauliflower
Salt and ground pepper, to taste
Chop the cauliflower into florets. Steam florets in a steamer basket over an inch of boiling water for about 5 to 10 minutes, or until tender. Once tender, throw the florets into a food processor or a blender and mix until smooth. Add the other ingredients and pulse until all ingredients are mixed. Enjoy!
For a bolder flavor, incorporate half a chopped, caramelized onion into your food processor. For a creamier option, add 1 or 2 Tbsp. clarified butter. Find more of Stacy’s signature recipes, visit her website, skphilosophy.com.
