Tofu and Cauliflower Garlic Mash

Make your holiday mashed potatoes healthier

Recipe Courtesy of House Foods

The addition of cauliflower and tofu to your traditional Thanksgiving mashed potatoes, fortifies this typically, not-so-healthy side dish with protein, vitamin C, and vitamin B-6. Not only will it be healthier, but the flavor will be more complex.
