Mashed Cauliflower Recipes

Does anyone have any healthy recipes for mashed cauliflower? 

I like the idea of using it as an alternative to mashed potatoes and couscous, but every recipe I've found ends up being higher-calorie than regular potatoes because of the cheese, buttermilk, and cream cheese everyone tosses in. :(

I'm okay with using a little milk, garlic, and butter, like I do with regular potatoes.

  • Oooh, I love cauliflower, so I'm interested in hearing recipes too.  :D
  • I mash it with a little bit of olive oil.  Just add a little at a time until you get the consistency you want.  I add a bit of pepper to it and some times a little garlic and its awesome!  FI loves it and until he met me he only ate cauliflower with cheese on it. 

    Try http://fatsecret.com/ they have a lot of recipes and it lists the calories, fat etc..... I plan my weekly meals with this website and we have found a lot of favorites!  

    Enjoy!

  • Thank you!
  • I would also suggest trying mashed lima beans. When you cook them for a long time they get so mushy, you don't need ANY milk, cream, butter, etc to make them nice and whipped.. I will add a little milk just for the flavoring, as well as things like garlic, onion, etc. It's amazing, and legumes are great for you. 
  • I just steam it, then whip it with my immersion blender! I add a little butter or cream depending on what I have in the fridge. 

  • Ok, so this isn't mashed cauliflower, but roasted cauliflower has been my newest *not* guilty pleasure.

    Just rough chop a head of cauliflower and roast it with salt and pepper and olive oil until it is brown on the edges.  Once it comes out I add some lemon zest.  It is sooooo yummy!

    I bet that if you added some roasted cauliflower to regular boiled cauliflower and turned it into mashed cauliflower it would be extra good.
