Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes & Mushroom Gravy: A Holiday Meal and Weekday Delight

This recipe is perfect for a holiday meal. It’s a beloved traditional recipe that has been upgraded: packed with healing foods! I especially enjoy it as a comfort food on cold wintry nights.

Cauliflower, potatoes, garlic and mushrooms are all powerful healing foods supporting our immune system. Anthony William describes the anti-inflammatory properties, cancer fighting ability, and how these foods improve our overall health in this article

Tips on How to Make 

  1. I use a food processor when making this recipe. It blends up the cauliflower mashed potatoes to perfection. To save time, don’t clean the food processor after blending the cauliflower and potatoes. 
  2. Leave about ½ cup of the cauliflower mashed potatoes in the food processor before blending the mushroom gravy. 
  3. Set aside 2 cups of mushroom mixture, then add the remaining mushrooms and both to the food processor along with the ½ cup of the cauliflower mashed potatoes, and blend to make the mushroom gravy.
  4. Serve the mushroom gravy over your cauliflower mashed potatoes and sprinkle the reserved mushrooms. Enjoy! 

This is my favorite vegan meal to serve on special occasions. It’s incredibly flavorful and very hearty. Even the meat eaters in my family are pleasantly satisfied with this all-in-one meal.
