Ok, so these are not your mama's mashed potatoes. Sam and I have been experimenting in the kitchen and last night he made these incredible mashed "potatoes" using cauliflower. Y'all they are so divine and creamy and totally healthy and low-carb (if you're watching them). Also, they are gluten-free! I'm being extra June Cleaver and making a pot roast tonight to go with the leftovers.

Mashed "Potatoes"
based on this recipe

You will need:

  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • splash of chicken stock
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter


    1. Clean and cut the cauliflower into small pieces. Cook in boiling water for about 6 minutes (or until tender). Drain well. Do not let cool. Pat cooked cauliflower very dry.
    2. In a blender, add the cauliflower + rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. You can also use an immersion blender or food processor. Enjoy!

    1. I made mash like this about 4 months ago, I may have gotten the idea from you...and they were delicious!

      1. so glad you liked them freya! honestly, these are so dressed up i would have never known they weren't the real deal.

    2. I love mashed cauliflower! It's so smooth and yummy. I'll have to have B try this recipe :) I think we've been making it w/out the cream cheese but cream cheese makes everything better.

    3. Totally gonna make these. This is the second time I've seen them on a blog in the past two days, and I'm always looking for new things to do with vegetables. Cauliflower is not generally my favorite, but I just might like it if it were cheesy and creamy and somewhat resembled mashed potatoes. :) 1/8 teaspoon chicken stock?! That is SOOOO TINY!

    4. i've wondered if these are any good! thanks!

    5. definitely trying this recipe.

    6. I have a head of cauliflower sitting in my fridge right now...i think i know what we're having for supper tonight :)

    7. i definitely need to try this, i love mashed potatoes and these look really good you can't even tell it is cauliflower
