Sunday, August 19, 2018

This is an Italian Style Goulash made with fresh plum tomatoes, beans, pasta and peppers. The Traditional American Goulash has many other spices including paprika in it, no beans and a classic dish using elbow macaroni.
Our Italian Style Goulash is seasoned with fennel and fresh herbs with lean ground beef. It's a hearty stew like soup perfect for a chilly evening. It's almost like a pasta fazool except it has peppers and beans in it. The Cabernet wine gives this sauce it's character.

Why Keto and Low Carb?



Potatoes are full of carbs. Cauliflower isn't. It's just that simple.


Any foods that turn into sugar are high in carbs.


When my son became a diabetic, I learned to cook all over again making healthier version of the foods he loves. potatoes are one of them.


If you are looking for a great substitute that's over the top delicious, give these mashed potatoes using cauliflower a try.

Low Carb and Cauliflower



I have loved cauliflower for years.


Mom usually fried the cauliflower in oil when I was growing up with a thick batter, mom always made those as a side dish.


As time went on and we all are health conscious about fried foods and diet changes, cauliflower transformed into a steamed or boiled side dish.


When I started seeing cauliflower all over the web being transformed into a substitution for mashed potatoes, it was like hitting the jackpot.


This creamy side dish is a keeper.


I could never say these taste exactly like potatoes to my potato loving fans out there, but it sure is a healthier delicious substitution.

Why the Added Carrots?



First of all I have a confession to make.


I love the sweetness of carrots and have always used them when boiling potatoes.


It's optional to add them, but I like the color it adds and a little sweetness, they really aren't a necessary ingredient

A Favorite Comfort Food and Substitutions



Cauliflower has now been turned into one of the worlds famous comfort foods of all time, mashed potatoes.


It's time to give them a try and see how you like them.


One thing is a must get the cauliflower as dry as you can, one reader suggested roasting instead of boiling the cauliflower instead which may be another great tip, thanks Larry!

Sticking To Keto and Low Carb



You can adapt the recipe any way you like, but stick to the keto and low carb ingredients.


Instead of sour cream, add cream cheese, if you don't like carrots, leave them out, I only added a handful.


You can also substitute the heavy cream for coconut milk if counting calories.


One thing I would not leave out of these delicious cauliflower mashed potatoes is the garlic and Parmesan,, both are delectable additions.
