Cauliflower Mash

If you’d like a change from potatoes, or are following a low carb diet, this flavorful mashed cauliflower dish is perfect for you.


Cooking cauliflower only in butter and cream (instead of steaming in water), and keeping it uncovered while cooking, keeps excess moisture out. This makes the dish thick and full of flavor, not runny (because of water).


Using a food processor or immersion blender, pulse cooked cauliflower until broken down. Add flavorings, then puree until smooth and creamy.
