Creamy cauliflower mash


8 people made this

About this recipe: I love mashed potatoes but when I started on a diet I couldn't have them as much! This made me create a healthier version using cauliflower and low fat cream cheese instead of butter! Steaming the cauliflower instead of boiling it in water will result in a fluffier mash.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 whole cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon low fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to the boil. Add cauliflower, cover, and steam until tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a small pan over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until softened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Transfer half the cauliflower to a food processor; cover and blend on high. Add remaining cauliflower florets, one at a time, until vegetables are creamy. Blend in garlic, Parmesan cheese, cream cheese, salt and black pepper.
