A great alternative to those high glycemic comfort foods!
If you haven't tried cauliflower mashed faux-tatoes, you really are doing yourself a disservice. You've probably seen these on websites, or in diet books. They really are fantastic! Give them a shot and let us know what you think! Thanks to experiencelife.com for the great recipe - this is one of Dr. Jesse's favorites. Dr. Jesse recommends pairing these with a grass-fed steak off the grill (medium rare, let the juices flow into those faux-tatoes)!
MAKES FOUR SERVINGS PREP TIME: 15 TO 20 MINUTES COOK TIME: 25 MINUTES
4 fennel bulbs, stalks and leaves removed
2 cloves garlic
2 tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
¾ tsp. sea salt, divided
¼ tsp. freshly cracked black pepper, divided
3 celeriac, peeled and cubed (about 4 cups)
3 tbs. ghee
½ cup unsweetened almond milk
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Cut the fennel into quarters and place it in an oven-safe dish with the garlic. Drizzle olive oil over it and sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon of the salt and 1/8 teaspoon of pepper. Cover and place in the oven and roast for 25 minutes.
In a large stockpot of water, boil the celeriac until soft, about 12 minutes. Drain and add to a food processor.
Add the roasted garlic and fennel mixture, ghee, almond milk, ½ teaspoon salt, and remaining pepper to the food processor and process until smooth.
Enjoy and let us know what you think!!!
