Thanksgiving Keto Cauliflower Mash

Let’s face it, you can’t have a proper Thanksgiving meal without a massive bowl of mash. This cauliflower mash with cream cheese is something we introduced for the holiday season, but I have a feeling you’ll make this recipe over and over again. It’s easy to make, irresistibly rich, and it will keep you full for hours.

Just as creamy as a classic potato mash, only without carbs, this cauliflower mash steals the spotlight. It also looks good on the Thanksgiving table. To make it pop, we served it with a dollop of butter and festive pink peppercorns.

If you find it challenging to stick to your meal plan and not be everyone’s burden with a special diet on Thanksgiving, we suggest you start thinking outside of the box. After all, potatoes had not been around historically to Plymouth at the time of the first Thanksgiving. They were introduced to North America shortly after the 1620s but did not become a part of America’s agricultural patchwork until 1719. They were instead using other types of roots, such as turnips for the first Thanksgiving celebrations.

This new version of a holiday meal won’t let you down. This is a family recipe, a low carb mash alternative that will perfectly pair up with turkey and gravy. Keep it warm, as the flavors unfold with heat. Set the table, and watch everyone gasp in excitement while you serve a Thanksgiving meal with a keto twist!
