Mashed Cauliflower

This recipe is a great alternative to the classic mashed potatoes we all love.  This might be my new favorite cauliflower recipe.


1 Head Cauliflower, florets removed

2 T Butter

1 T Minced Garlic

1 T Cream Cheese, softened

1/4 C Parmesan Cheese

Salt and Pepper to taste


-In medium pot over high heat, bring salted water to boil (you will need enough to cover cauliflower), add in florets.  Boil 7 minutes.

-In small pot melt butter over medium low heat, add in garlic and cook until garlic becomes fragrant.

-Drain Cauliflower, using clean kitchen towel, lightly dry cauliflower (this will prevent too much moisture and will result in fluffy finished product.)

-Place drained cauliflower, butter mixture and remaining ingredients in food processor.  Process until cauliflower is pureed and ingredients are well blended.

-I served mine with fresh parsley on top.  Enjoy!
