Mashed “Potatoes” With Chives
Surprise, surprise: Cauliflower replaces nearly all the usual butter in these calorie-friendly mashed spuds.
8 oz cauliflower, florets

2 medium garlic clove(s), peeled
1 tsp table salt, divided
1/4 cup(s) 1% low-fat milk
2 tsp butter
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp chives, fresh, snipped
Place cauliflower, potatoes, garlic and 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a medium saucepan. Add enough water to cover ingredients and bring to a boil. Boil until vegetables are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes; drain and return to saucepan.
Stir in milk, butter, remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper; mash with a potato masher until smooth. Stir in chives and serve.
