Nightshade Free Garlic and Herb Mashed Cauliflower Recipe

Nightshade Free Garlic and Herb Mashed Cauliflower Recipe

When trying to stick to a psoriasis friendly diet that consists of zero nightshade vegetables it can be tough to find suitable replacements for potatoes. Cauliflower is a great substitute to give you that carb type feeling associated with white potatoes.

The final outcome of this recipe is a mash that has lots of flavour and you will never want normal potatoes again after this. Please be warned there is unsalted butter in this recipe so you can replace with some extra virgin olive oil or ghee if required. You will find that this once avoided vegetable will now become one of your staple food items from now on!
