How To Make ~ creamy mashed cauliflower ~

  • 1
    Clean and cut cauliflower into small pieces. Place in dutch oven along with garlic and onion if using. Cover with cold water. I add some sea salt. Bring to boil then simmer until fork tender. Drain well and add to medium bowl or bowl of a food processor. ( if using food processor, add all ingredients to the hot cauliflower and process until desired consistency) I use my immersion blender to mash, so i place in a medium bowl.
