Serving Size:

    Diet Types:
  • CKD non-dialysis

  • Lower Protein
  • Vegetarian

Ingredients

  • 1 cup potatoes
  • 3 cups cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon margarine
  • 1/4 cup half & half
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  1. Peel potato and cut into small cubes. Soak or double-boil to reduce potassium if you are on a low potassium diet (see helpful hints below). 
  2. In a medium-size pot, boil cauliflower and potatoes for 25 minutes.  Drain and place in food processor or mixing bowl.
  3. Add margarine, half & half and salt (optional).  Process or mix on high speed until smooth.  Serve hot. 

Helpful hints

  • Potatoes are very high in potassium but you can remove part of the potassium by using one of these methods:
    • Double cook method: Peel and dice potatoes. Place in a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Drain the water and add fresh water to the pot. Bring to a boil, cook for 10 minutes then drain and set aside.
    • Leaching method:  Peel and dice potatoes. Place in a large pot of warm tap water and soak for 2 to 4 hours. Drain and set aside.
  • Skip step # 1 if you are not on a low potassium diet.
  • Omit salt if adding other sodium containing toppings such as gravy, salted butter, etc.  Sodium content per portion is 37 milligrams prepared without salt.
  • Frozen cauliflower can be substituted for fresh.
  • Freeze extra portions for later meal.  Reheat in microwave.
