The Best Mashed Cauliflower

by hungryelephant

Bought a head of cauliflower the other day. It’s been a while since I cooked it, so I figured I’d half it incase I messed something up. Today’s journey was perfecting the best mashed cauliflower – and it worked! One guest – who didn’t know it was cauliflower – insisted it was mashed potatoes! JOB WELL DONE!

The key to making these taste super yummy – and mash well – is to make sure you don’t have any water left on the veggies when you take them out of the water. Try to dry them off as much as possible.

This is a good recipe for those sticking to a low-carb & keto diet! Cauliflower is very good to eat in moderation!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Half head of cauliflower
  • 1 heaping tbsp of butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • dash of milk
  • 1 tsp salt (KEY!!!) & pepper.

This is so simple to make. Chop up your cauliflower, so it’s just florettes. Dump them into a pot and fill with water. Bring that to a boil on high, lower heat and cook for 15 minutes.

When thats done, drain in a colander. Jiggle it around so you get most of the water out of the colander – or you can dry them with a paper towel, but then it gets gooey. Alternatively, you can let them sit for a few minutes however they will cool, which you don’t want.

Dump them back into the pot, add in your garlic, butter, milk and salt/pepper. Mash with fork or masher until you have the consistency of mashed potatoes.

VOILA. You’re done. Add more salt if needed! Top with chives or green onions.
