Whipped Cauliflower and Potatoes
- CKD non-dialysis
- Lower Protein
- 1 cup potatoes
- 3 cups cauliflower
- 1 tablespoon margarine
- 1/4 cup half & half
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 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).
- In a medium-size pot, boil cauliflower and potatoes for 25 minutes. Drain and place in food processor or mixing bowl.
- Add margarine, half & half and salt (optional). Process or mix on high speed until smooth. Serve hot.
- 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.
