So, my husband made these for dinner tonight, and they were good! The consistency is smooth, too smooth for mashed potatoes to me, so I have to get used to the texture. But the taste is great..

1 Bag of Steam-in-bag cauliflower.

1 Clove of Garlic.

1/8 C. Fat free ricotta cheese.

2 green onions, chopped.

Splash or two of fat free chicken broth.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Follow directions on the bag of cauliflower. Place in blender, add garlic, ricotta, and some chicken broth. Blend until you get a smooth, mashed potato-y consistency [you may have to add more chicken broth to get this texture.] Put in bowl, garnish with green onions, serve...

How to you count the cauliflower? like your green? how many cups and such? Some info would be great? So I can eat with with chicken breast right? thanks again for help.



Comment #2

Just wanted to mention that onions are not allowed when on the 5 &1 as they are high carb...

Comment #3

The recipe above calls for green onions which are allowed as a green..

Also 1 tbsp of regular onion is allowed as 1 condiment...

Comment #4

We actually didn't use the onion, just garnished with parsley.

And since the main ingredient is the cauliflower, I just counted that as my serving....i.e. 1/2cup of the 'mashed potatoes' was a 1/2 cup of the green. I'm a newbie, so you expert MF'ers please let me know if that's wrong. I don't want to give incorrect advice. Thanks!..

Hi quill, can you show me where you are seeing that listed? I am reading from the PDF entitled "Green Options" and it specifically states that onions are not allowed as they are considered High Carb vegetables (along with carrots, corn and peas). Here's the "Green Option" pdf I'm referring to that says onions are not allowed.


On the condiment options, 1/2 tsp of ONION POWDER is allowed but that is significantly different from onions.

Here's the condiment pdf I am referring to.


Mojito - I love mashed cauliflower. I make it with plain cauliflower and ricotta (nothing else added but that's just my personal taste..

Comment #6

Onion as condiment.

The pdf you refer to...last page under "Additional Condiment Options".

Raw onion, chopped:1 Tbsp.

Sliced: 1 thin slice.

For Green onions (which is what the recipe said) as Green, look at the pdf you referred to.

Scallions (same thing as green onions): 0.5 cups under higher carb options...

Comment #7

Quill, thanks for pointing me to that section. To be honest, I'm confused by it. How can an onion be too high in carbs to be an acceptable vegetable but ok as an additional condiment option? Carbs are carbs.

(also I had no idea that a green onion refers to a scallion...why not just call it a scallion? clearly I'm not a cook)..

Comment #8

Condiments are a 'lower' amount allowed. My guess is they found over time that NO onions was too restrictive so they made a very limited amount as a condiment 'okay'...1 tbsp is NOT very much onion..

As far as a name...different regions call them different things. Just like Soda and Pop I imagine. The Medifast guide refers to green onions as 'scallions.'..

Comment #9

I found this to make a very small amount to count as your green for the day, did anyone else? The taste is fine, just not much food..

Comment #10

To thicken them up, add a bit of Baking powder or 1/4 cup of eggbeaters. (Remember to deduct the egg from your lean...about 3 ounces if you do the ricotta, too...kind of a guess) Add the works into a small casserole dish and bake at 350, uncovered, for 45 minutes. (Something you can plan for next time) Mmmmm....they are so good! NICE!..
