Mashed Faux-tatoes {GAPS}

Potatoes, being so starchy, are not allowed in any form at any stage of the GAPS diet. This is quite the disappointment for certain members of our family. However, there are alternatives that actually appease them. One of these is mashed faux-tatoes – a dish that we enjoyed well before the GAPS diet, in fact. Mixed with real potatoes, no one even guesses the secret ingredient (that offers extra nutrients). Even without real potatoes, the faux variety is pretty convincing.

The recipe is simple:
Boil a head of cauliflower without the stalks in stock.*
Put in food processor. (save stock for a soup base)
Blend to desired consistency.

*If not on the GAPS diet, you can steam it, which makes the finished product thicker. Then again, boiling in stock gives it a wonderful flavor…
