Another product HoldTheCarbs.com offers is theirLC-Thick’n Potatoes Mix. Picking up where Thick’n'Thin left off when they stopped producing for private sale, this product, added to mashed cauliflower, thickens things up in short order, for a thicker, meatier side dish.
The product does what it promises, making mealtimes and those, “Is this mashed cauliflower?” side eyes from the kids less obnoxious than normal.
Mashed Fauxtatoes a la HoldtheCarbs
2 bags frozen cauliflower (about 15 oz each)
1/2 cup full-fat sour cream
4 Tbsp butter
3 tsp LC-Thick’n Potatoes
On stove: Boil water. Add frozen cauliflower and cook until flowerettes are extremely tender, between 6-8 minutes. Pour off excess water.
In microwave: Place frozen cauliflower in a 4-6 quart covered, microwavable container. Cook for 8 minutes, or until cauliflower is steamed and extremely soft. Pour off excess liquid.
Throw the cauliflower bags away if you’re trying to steer kids to not ask questions about the ‘potatoes’ (it’s our secret).
Place cooked cauliflower in blender. Add sour cream, butter and Thick’ nStarchy. Blend, stirring occasionally (do not stir contents with tongue).
Serve with gravy* (see below). You can place bowl of piping hit goodness next to a prepared bowl of whole cauliflower. Kids may steer away from the cauliflower and grab what they think are the mashed potatoes!
*tapping my head* This is because we’re smart, and sneaky.
