Dietitian's tip:

Be sure not to over whip the potatoes or they will take on a paste-like texture.

Number of servings

Serves 12
  1. Low-fat
  2. Meatless
  3. Healthy-carb


  1. 4 large russet potatoes, peeled and chopped into medium chunks
  2. 2 medium heads cauliflower, cut into quarter size florets
  3. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  4. 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  6. 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  7. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  8. Pinch of ground black pepper


Bring water to a boil in two medium sauce pots. Boil potatoes and cauliflower in separate pots until each are fork tender, about 10 minutes; remove from heat and drain. Place cauliflower in a food processor and process until smooth, about 2 minutes. Place potatoes and processed cauliflower into a large mixer with a whip attachment and mix on medium speed for about 1 minute. Add the butter, yogurt, salt, thyme, garlic powder and black pepper. Mix on the stir setting until all ingredients are well-incorporated, about 2 minutes. Serve.
