This Cauliflower mash recipe is an easy way to cut down on carbs without sacrificing flavor. I mean, what’s the point in eating something at all if it doesn’t taste good, right?
In my opinion, food should be all about balance, so this recipe is a great way to cut out the carbs from regular mashed potatoes, but keep all the amazing flavor. And if you really want to be healthy, the cheese is totally optional. Either way, you’re going to love this tasty Cauliflower Mash recipe!
And Cauliflower mash is actually so easy to make. It’s basically the same process as making mashed potatoes, but with cauliflower instead! Boil the cauliflower, blend it into a creamy consistency, then add in the extras.
You can use a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. (Or smash by hand!)
- 1 Large Head Cauliflower leaves removed and broken into large florets
- 4-6 Garlic Cloves finely chopped and divided
- 2 cups Chicken or vegetable broth
- 4 cups Water
- 4 tablespoons butter
- ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
- ¼ cup cup milk
- 1 teaspoon Chopped Thyme
- 1 teaspoon Chopped Rosemary
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Place the cauliflower florets in a large pot and cover with broth and water.
Add in half of the garlic and a good pinch of salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15-18 minutes, or until cauliflower is fork-tender.
Using a colander, strain the cooked cauliflower and place it into a food processor.
Add in the remaining garlic, herbs, grated cheese and butter. As the food processor is processing, slowly add in the milk.
Process until smoothly pureed.
Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
Sprinkle with fresh chopped herbs.
Tip: The cauliflower is not covered fully by the water and broth, this way it will get steamed.
