Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Are you tired of the same old mashed potatoes? Looking for a healthier alternative that is still satisfying and delicious? Look no further than cauliflower! Not only is cauliflower low in calories and high in fiber, it is also a great source of vitamins C and K. Replacing potatoes with cauliflower in your favorite dishes can be a great way to add more nutrition to your diet.

One easy and delicious way to enjoy cauliflower is to make “mashed” cauliflower, which is similar in texture and taste to mashed potatoes. Here is a recipe for cauliflower “mashed” potatoes:


1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets

5 large cloves garlic

Salt to taste

2 tablespoons butter

¼ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg

¼- ½ cup chicken broth (as needed)

Freshly ground black pepper to taste


Fill a 6 qt pot with 2 inches of water, insert metal steamer, and bring to a boil. Add in the cauliflower florets and garlic. Steam until tender (10 minutes).

Remove and place in a colander to drain. Once drained, sprinkle the florets with salt.

Place florets, garlic, butter, black pepper, nutmeg, and ¼ cup broth in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning.

If the mixture is too thick, add more broth as needed to achieve desired consistency.

This recipe serves 6-8 people and can be easily customized to your liking. For example, you can add herbs like rosemary or thyme, or swap out the chicken broth for vegetable broth if you’re vegetarian or vegan. You can also experiment with different types of cheese, such as Parmesan or cheddar, for added flavor.

Cauliflower “mashed” potatoes are a healthy and delicious alternative to traditional mashed potatoes. They are easy to make, low in carbs, lower on the glycemic index and packed with nutrients that your body needs.
