A new spin on a classic favorite. These mashed potatoes are made with potatoes, cauliflower, and carrots. They are as delicious as they are colorful.


  • 3 medium baking potatoes (1 lb.), peeled and cubed
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup sliced carrots
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese


In a medium pot cook potatoes, cauliflower, and carrots. Cover them in enough boiling water for them to cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain.

Mash the vegetables with a potato masher or beat with an electric hand mixer on low speed.

Add sour cream and salt. Mash or beat until combined. Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste. Top each serving with Parmesan cheese.

Servings: 6
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: 20 Minutes

This is a great way to cut out some of the carbohydrates from your mashed potatoes, and sneak some veggies in. Clean, cut up, and steam or microwave a head of cauliflower until it's soft, then put it in the blender or food processor, and process it into a fine puree (add water as needed). Then mix the puree in with your regular mashed potatoes. I also added a bit of instant potato flakes (like Potato Buds) to thicken things up a bit. Season with olive oil, a bit of butter, and a dash of garlic powder and black pepper.


I just tried this at dinner today, and my husband and 5-year-old not only didn't complain, they both had second helpings!
