Mashed Not Potatoes

Thanksgiving just isn’t the same without mashed potatoes.   Mashed cauliflower is very similar, but saves a lot of carbs.  You can also customize them for whatever your crowd likes.



1 small cauliflower (or 4 cups florets)

2 ounces sour cream

2 tablespoons butter

4 ounces chicken broth

¼ teaspoon garlic and onion powder (or 1 fresh garlic clove)

Salt and pepper to taste



Thoroughly wash cauliflower and split it into florets. Place cauliflower flowers into the slow cooker bowl and pour chicken broth over it. Cook on high temperature for approximately 2 hours. Mash florets with the help of the hand mixer or blender until you receive homogeneous texture. Stir in butter, sour cream, or whatever toppings you prefer. I like to top it with fresh parsley or dill.

Zucchini Chips

These are super easy to make since the slicer does most of the work. It’s a healthy alternative to the usual snack/appetizers that people usually serve at holiday parties.


1 large zucchini

1 tsp olive oil

Salt to taste (we use Cajun seasoning)


Slice the zucchini thinly. I use a mandolin slicer like this one:


Place slices on baking sheet and brush with the olive oil.

Bake at 225 degrees F for 2 hours.
