Potato Cauliflower mash

Just about like regular mashed potatoes but with a few dietary benefits


  • 1 large cauliflower, broken into large 1” even pieces
  • 2-3 potatoes cut into 2 “pieces
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 14 ounces vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chives chopped as garnish


  • In vegetable stock simmer all ingredients until tender,
  • mash or use food processor until desired texture.
  • Remove the water
  • Top with chopped chives


  1. Jerusalem artichokes also make a nice addition to regular potatoes, just replace the cauliflower with the Jerusalem artichoke
  2. For a nice addition you can use some turmeric in the recipe, try a teaspoon or two at first. Turmeric is a good source of anti-inflammatory

Oven-Roasted Root Vegetables

  • Level: Easy
  • Total: 1 hr 5 min
  • Prep: 20 min
  • Cook: 45 min
  • Yield: 4 servings (8 cups)


  • 1 large butternut squash, (1 1/2 to 2 pounds) halved, seeded and peeled
  • 3 large Yukon gold potatoes (1 1/2 pounds), scrubbed
  • 1 bunch medium beets, (about 1 1/2 pounds), scrubbed and tops trimmed
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 2 large parsnips (about 8 ounces)
  • 1 head garlic, cloves separated, and peeled (about 16)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Place 2 baking sheets in the oven and preheat to 425 degrees F.
  2. Cut all the vegetables into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Cut the onions through the base core to keep some of the layers in chunky pieces. Toss all the vegetables with garlic, olive oil and salt in large bowl. Season generously with pepper.
  • Carefully remove the heated baking sheets from the oven, brush or drizzle with olive oil. Divide the vegetables evenly between the 2 pans, spreading them out to assure they don’t steam while roasting. Roast the vegetables until tender and golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
