Cauliflower Mash

Share This Post


– 1 medium-sized cauliflower

– 2 cloves of garlic, minced

– 2 tablespoons of butter

– 1/4 cup of milk (you can use regular milk or a dairy-free alternative)

– Salt and pepper to taste

– Optional toppings: grated cheese, chopped chives, or crispy bacon bits


  1. Start by preparing the cauliflower. Remove the leaves and cut the cauliflower into florets. Rinse them thoroughly under running water.
  2. Fill a large pot with water and bring it to a boil. Add a pinch of salt to the water. Place the cauliflower florets into the boiling water and cook them until they are tender. This usually takes about 8-10 minutes.
  3. While the cauliflower is cooking, melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté it gently until it becomes fragrant, for about 1-2 minutes. Set the garlic butter aside.
  4. Once the cauliflower is tender, drain it well and transfer it to a food processor or a large bowl if you prefer using a hand blender.
  5. Add the garlic butter to the cauliflower. Start mashing the cauliflower with a food processor, hand blender, or potato masher until it reaches a smooth and creamy consistency. If needed, you can add a splash of milk to help with the blending process.
  6. Once the cauliflower is mashed, add the milk gradually while continuing to blend until you achieve the desired creamy texture. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the amount of milk, butter, and seasonings based on your preference.
  7. Serve the cauliflower mash while it’s still warm. You can top it with grated cheese, chopped chives, or crispy bacon bits for extra flavor and texture.

Enjoy your homemade cauliflower mash! It makes a delicious and healthier alternative to traditional mashed potatoes.
