Deluxe Mashed Cauliflower

If you’re looking for a healthy vegetable dish then you might want to keep looking. But this recipe is so incredibly delicious that I recommend trying it anyway. You’ll be amazed that you’re eating cauliflower!

It can be served in place of mashed potatoes but this is way better than such plebeian fare. 😉


Deluxe Mashed Cauliflower


1 head steamed cauliflower
1 cup heavy whipping cream (to start; may use a tad less)
1 cup grated Parmesan Regianno cheese (to start; may use a tad less)
1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
5 tablespoons whipped cream cheese
1 tablespoon bacon fat


Using a food processor, add the cauliflower, approximately half of the cream, approximately half of the Parmesan, and the remaining ingredients. Blend until fluffy and creamy, adding additional cream for texture and Parmesan for flavor as needed.


Original recipe from How To Make Mashed Cauliflower, Because It Goddamn Tastes Great.

COOK’S NOTES: Might want to try developing a less fatty version. Current ideas include substituting roasted garlic for bacon fat, milk for cream, and sour cream for cream cheese.
