When I was little, my sister and I did not always eat our vegetables. Sometimes we flat-out refused. But we had a sneaky mom who “tricked” us into eating cauliflower and cabbage without us ever knowing. She added it to our mashed potatoes. So, while we thought we were eating plain old mashed potatoes, we were actually eating a tasty dish full of vitamins and minerals we needed to stay healthy.
Cauliflower offers an abundance of nutritional value for kids and adults. It is an excellent source of folate, vitamin C and dietary fiber to help build your immune system and keep your heart healthy.
Cabbage is also high in fiber and nutrients, with just one cup providing 4 percent of the recommended daily intake of eight vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C and iron.
Mashed Cauliflower and Cabbage With Potatoes
½ to 1 head of cauliflower
¼ head of cabbage (green, savoy and napa varieties are easy to mask with the potatoes)
3 to 5 white potatoes
Salt to taste
Butter and milk as needed
Boil cauliflower, cabbage and potatoes until soft. Mash them by hand and then use an electric mixer, adding butter and milk as needed for a smooth consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste.
