Mashed Fauxtatoes using Palmini "Mashed"

Thanksgiving is approaching. (Can you believe it?) I'm still finalizing my Thanksgiving menu, but mashed fauxtatoes are a definite inclusion. Mashed potatoes are a holiday dinner essential, but since transitioning to a low-carb lifestyle, I've experimented with various fauxtato recipes to find the perfect substitute.

I've prepared mashed cauliflower countless times. While cauliflower is a decent alternative, I was seeking something fresh and distinctive. Recently, while replenishing my Palmini products, I came across their low-carb version called "Mashed." Intrigued yet skeptical, I decided to give it a try based on my positive experiences with other Palmini recipes like Chipotle copycat cilantro lime rice and baked garlic scampi.

If you're unfamiliar with Palmini, they specialize in crafting low-carb substitutes using hearts of palm. Their rice and pasta options are fantastic. The mashed hearts of palm is packaged in a pouch, offering a texture akin to mashed potatoes but slightly moist with a citrusy aroma and flavor, consistent with their other products. To enhance the taste, I incorporated garlic to complement the natural flavor of the hearts of palm. After microwaving, the moisture dissipated. By adding plain Greek yogurt and olive oil, I achieved a fluffy consistency.

The results exceeded my expectations. The texture closely resembled traditional mashed potatoes, and the additional ingredients enhanced the recipe's creaminess and flavor. Move aside, cauliflower, as this will undoubtedly become a staple for me!


  • 1 Palmini Mashed pouch

  • 1-4 cloves of minced garlic

  • 1/2 tablespoon of plain Greek yogurt

  • 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil

  • Sea Salt, to be added according to taste

  • Black pepper, to be added according to taste

  • Chives for garnish (optional)


  1. Take Palmini mashed out of the pouch and transfer it to a bowl.

  2. Include the minced garlic.

  3. Warm the Palmini mashed in the microwave for 1.5 minutes, heating in 30-second intervals.

  4. Incorporate the remaining ingredients and mix until thoroughly blended.

  5. Plate the dish and garnish with chives. Enjoy!
