Lately I have been thinking a lot about side dishes with Thanksgiving coming up. Although I have never been in charge of the turkey, I like to leave that to the seasoned pros; I am almost always in charge of a few sides dishes or desserts. And this year instead of throwing all caution to the wind and loading up potatoes with butter and cream, I am going to opt for a tasty, less heavy version made with cauliflower, potatoes, and roasted garlic. In my opinion, the roasted garlic makes up for the missing fat and the combination of cauliflower and potato cuts down on both the carbs and calories. I like to include one potato for texture, but if you are following a low carb or paleo diet, you can leave that out completely or replace it with 1 cup of chopped celery root. If you can, make this one day ahead of time to really let the flavors combine before serving.
