GOAT CHEESE AND CAULIFLOWER MASH UP
Goat Cheese and Cauliflower Mash Up by Chef Alexa
Goat Cheese and Cauliflower Mash Up
Goats are some of my favorite creatures. Their funny eyes, little horns, and tiny feet tickle the heck out of me. I giggle every single time I see a goat. Every. Single. Time. What I like the most about goats is their cheese! If I had my way, I would eat goat cheese all the time. Apparently, I’m not allowed to swear in this, or I would include some exclamatory remarks about goat cheese. Indiana happens to make some of the finest goat cheese known to mankind. Our Hoosier goats are the best. Their cheese makes anything taste palatable—even mashed cauliflower.
For the keto way of eating, mashed cauliflower is a staple side dish. While I don’t find cauliflower objectionable, mashed cauliflower can only be described in one word: gross. Using my chef-sense, I realized that goat cheese could add the missing flavor and texture to make it good. My Goat Cheese and Cauliflower Mash Up recipe is still low carb, sugar free, and gluten free. It just tastes better.
Chef Alexa shows off the perfect serving portion
When I calculate my macros, I’m often guilty of eating too lean. Along with flavor and texture, goat cheese adds healthy fat. That’s why this dish doesn’t need to wait for Thanksgiving to make an appearance. During the week, I serve it with Game Day Meatloaf. I just wish I could be surrounded by goats when I eat. That would truly by KetoLuxe.
Enjoy Goat Cheese and Cauliflower Mash Up with your Thanksgiving meal or anytime of the year
