Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A (2 beneficials)
  • Type A Non Secretor (1 beneficials)
  • Type AB (3 beneficials)
  • Type AB Non Secretor (4 beneficials)
  • Type B (3 beneficials)
  • Type B Non Secretor (4 beneficials)
  • Side Dish
  • 1 Head Chopped Cauliflower
  • 1/2 Cup appropriate Milk Substitute (Almond, Rice, Soy, etc)
  • 2 Tablespoons Ghee, Butter, Oil [or other BTD compliant]
  • 2 Scallions Chopped (Optional)
  • Dash Sea Salt
How to make it:
  1. Steam cauliflower until very tender.
  2. Drain and dry cauliflower very well (I suggest wrapping in paper towel).
  3. In a food processor or blender, add cooked cauliflower, some ghee (or other), a dash sea salt, and drizzle in the milk sub until the desired consistency is reached.
    This makes the perfect faux-tato base. You can top with cheese, some chopped scallions, anything you'd do to real mashed potatoes! Great with roast garlic!
