Mashed Cauliflower


  • 1 cauliflower, chopped into small pieces

  • 1.5 tbsp butter

  • 3 garlic cloves

  • 1 tablespoon reduced fat cream cheese

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 1/4 tsp pepper


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the cauliflower and cook for 6-8 minutes until tender. Drain and use a dish towel or paper towels to pat the cauliflower dry. This will ensure the mash is fluffy and thick.

While the cauliflower is cooking, melt the butter in a small sauce pan. Add the garlic and cook for 2-4 minutes until very fragrant and tender. Remove from heat.

Add the cauliflower, garlic butter, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper to a food processor or blender. Puree until smooth and fluffy.
