With clocks rolling back and temperatures dropping, there’s no question that Autumn is in full swing! My desire to wrap myself in a cozy blanket and enjoy a warm and hearty meal is in full swing as well, and this Cheesy Roasted Garlic Mashed Cauliflower recipe is just the ticket! It’s rich and creamy and the type of comfort food that really “sticks to your ribs”.

But unlike many typical comfort foods, this dish is guilt free and loaded with nutrients! By using cauliflower rather than potatoes, you’ll save loads of starchy carbs, while simultaneously reaping the many benefits that adorn cruciferous vegetables. You’ll be amazed at how light and fluffy the texture is, and how closely it matches that of typical mashed potatoes.

But cauliflower isn’t the only superstar in this recipe – I’ve also got to give a round of applause to the Real Salt® which does a wonderful job of bringing out the flavors of the dish. Contrary to popular belief, all salt is not created equal, and it truly can be a difference maker! Real Salt® is unrefined, has no additives or preservatives, and comes with a full complement of natural trace minerals. There’s also no question as to where the salt comes from – a pristine salt mine here in good ol’ Utah!

Cheese, milk, and garlic round the recipe out and deliver the ultra creamy texture that you’ve come to expect form one of America’s favorite comfort foods. Don’t be surprised if friends and family regularly ask you to make this dish for your gatherings after getting a taste!
