  • 1 large russet potato, peeled and cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 4 cups fresh cauliflower florets
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • Cooking Directions

    In a large saucepan, combine the potatoes, cauliflower, and garlic. Add water to cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once the mixture boils, reduce the heat so that it simmers. Cook until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes; drain, and return to the pan

    Add the buttermilk to the pan. With a hand-held blender, puree the mixture until it is smooth. (You can also use a food processor or a potato masher.) Season with salt and pepper to taste

    Transfer the mixture to a bowl and sprinkle the chives over the potatoes.
