Creamy Cauliflower Mash with Keto Gravy Recipe

This recipe is one of the best ways to use your cauliflower, and it features keto gravy. The alternative to cauliflower mash is potato mash, and you make both with the same method. But what makes cauliflower better is that it is lower in net carbs at 6 net carbs per cup compared to potato’s 22 net carbs per cup, which is over what you need as a keto dieter.

Making this cauliflower mash is easy, as all you have to do is boil your cauliflower and pour in a processor to make a silky smooth blend. Also, it blends more with the ingredients and is also creamier, plus it’s lighter than potato.

The keto gravy is not only for this cauliflower mash, but it also goes perfectly with chicken and turkey, and every other gravy-friendly meal.
