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.
  2. Add everything else to hot well drained cauliflower. Puree everything together. Taste and readjust flavors to your taste. Serve hot. Can sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley.

    Enjoy! Sooo good!
