Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

I’ve known about cauliflower mashed potatoes for a very long time but I’ve never gotten around to making them until now. Holy shiz, I’m glad I did because they are AMAZING!! I served them up for my boyfriend who is a pizza, hamburger, meat & potatoes kind of guy and he loved them! He said that if I hadn’t told him, he would have had no idea they we made from cauliflower!! Mothers of picky eaters take note, this recipe is the holy grail for disguising vegetables.

The other thing I love about this recipe is that it is SO fast and easy to make. Much faster than traditional mashed potatoes. It’s also great for those of you who are staying away from starches and carbs.

You’ll need:

In a medium sauce pan with lid, steam chopped cauliflower until soft.

Steaming Veggies My Way: I’m all about speed and ease so this is my shortcut to steaming veggies. Fill a pot or saucepan with water about 1 inch deep. Add 1/2tsp sea salt and bring to a boil. Add chopped vegetables and cook until soft, about 3-6 mins depending on the vegetable. Drain the excess water and you’re done!

In your saucepan add steamed cauliflower, almond milk, chevre style goat cheese, and butter. I used a stick blender to process the ingredients until smooth but you could also use a food processor or potato masher. Add sea salt if needed to taste.

I garnished mine with fresh cracked pepper, a drizzle of olive oil, and fresh parsley. Mmmmmm, so delish! PLEASE don’t wait as long as I did to try this recipe. It is so fast and easy to make and more delicious then you could imagine!

    to ease my husband into it, I mash cauliflower and a couple potatoes. this way he keeps trying my recipes!

    Wow Linda – if you didn’t say that was cauliflower, I would have assumed it was regular mashed potatoes with potatoes! I’d bet kids would love this too because it looks like the “real thing”!

  6. Heather August 2, 2012 at 11:09 am #

    My kids would rather eat mashed cauliflower over potatoes any day. I’m going to have to give your variation a try. Sounds delicious.

    I make these quite often too! They are amazing! I just bought two heads of cauliflower at the store this morning with this very idea in mind for them. So glad you’re back and posting. Missed you! XO

    So much better than potatoes. 🙂

    Thank you! I love mashed potatoes so much but I know they are just empty carbs with no real nutrition 🙁 But this mashed cauliflower did the trick!

  15. Karin August 8, 2012 at 7:33 pm #

    Just made these for dinner and I completely agree with the holy shiz! I actually made them without the butter and cheese and they were still absolutely delicious. Can’t wait to fake out my family with this one 🙂

    Has anyone tried to make these in advance and rewarming just before serving?

    • Linda December 4, 2012 at 9:13 am #

      you can absolutely make in advance and then reheat! I do it all the time!!

    I’ve been eating Smashed Cauliflower for quite a long time, it’s one of my favorite veggies. I prepare a large amount and enjoy them again the next day.
    I like to make a bed of smashed cauliflower then place something colorful on top such as a colorful medley of roasted vegetables or for those times I do eat meat, I will top them with a nice slice of turkey meatloaf, the two are wonderful together.

    • Linda January 22, 2013 at 1:25 pm #

      fantastic!

      • Judy Anderson January 22, 2013 at 1:32 pm #

        Can someone tell me how I go about adding my photo like so many others have?
        Many thanks. 🙂

    I love this recipe! It was so easy and quick to make, which is perfect for me since I am not much of a cook. Even my boyfriend loved it! Thanks Linda.

    xoxo, Elizabeth

      So glad you liked it! I actually just found your blog this week and am a HUGE fan!! xo

    Making these tonight! Thanks for having a super EASY print function!! Do you mind me asking which one you use? I’d like to add a print friendly icon to my blog. Thank you!! 🙂

    I only discovered cauliflower mash a few months ago (I know, I’ve been living under a stone right?), when I was looking at healthy alternatives to potato mash. As a big potato eater, I noticed the weight piling on and I needed a non carb substitute to wean me of the starch. So glad I found cauli mash. It’s the best!

    I’ve got a nice little cauliflower sitting in my fridge, waiting to be eaten. Guess who’s recipe I’ll be trying out now. 🙂

    Anyway, enough of my rambling, I wanted to ask if it were OK for me to feature your recipe in a round we’re putting together on Thanksgiving sides? Just need to use one of your images, but I always link back.

    Do let me know if that’s cool with you. I won’t publish without your permission.

    Cheers

    Is the goat cheese a must or can something be substituted?

    • Linda November 20, 2014 at 6:53 pm #

      It’s not a must but it adds a nice creamy texture!
