Recipe: Cheesy, Creamy Mashed Cauliflower

The other day I told you about my cauliflower/mashed potatoes. Today I have a full out mashed cauliflower recipe. This recipe is so good, they won’t mind that it’s cauliflower and not potatoes.

If you are worried about the heavy cream, it’s only 2 tablespoons, not a whole cup.

Cheesy, Creamy Mashed Cauliflower

Servings: 4


1 head of cauliflower
2 Tablespoon of heavy cream
1 Tablespoon butter
2 ounces sharp cheese
Salt and pepper to taste


Wash and trim cauliflower into medium sized chunks.

Pour cauliflower, 2 tablespoons heavy cream and 1 tablespoon butter into a microwave safe bowl with a cover and microwave, six minutes on high.
Mix the cream and butter to coat the cauliflower. Return to microwave and cook for 6 more minutes on high.

Place hot mixture into a blender or food processor. Add cheese. Pulverize until consistency is smooth. Season with pepper and salt.
Adjust cream and butter to your creaminess preference
