Cauliflower mash is a staple on a low carb diet! I’ve tried many techniques and variations. Some were okay, some were not okay, but none of them were perfect. After a little trial and error, I came up with a recipe that my whole family loves and comes out perfect every time!

This recipe is for a “base” cauliflower mash. It’s delicious on it’s own but it’s also perfect for adding extras (i.e. bacon bits, garlic powder, Parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, etc). This recipe couldn’t be any easier either. Your microwave and food processor (blender) do all the work. You only need to enjoy!

What I’ve found most helpful in cauliflower mash is a GOOD food processor. My $40 mini Cuisinart food processor just can’t get the job done. If you have it in your budget, I highly recommend investing in a good food processor. I use mine daily for so many different things. When you cook gluten free and low carb, often times a food processor is the easiest way to mix things. The absence of gluten allows foods to be processed unlike their wheat counterparts.

This is the one I currently use and I LOVE it! My cauliflower-mash gets as creamy as real whipped potatoes with this bad boy!



For a more savory cauli mash, I like to add 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder + 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese! Sometimes I add some bacon bits and shredded cheddar cheese on top too!

Tips: for THICKER mash, add more cream cheese or less HWC. For THINNER mash add more HWC. This recipe will make enough for 2 large servings or 4 moderate servings. For a family of 2 adults and 2 children, you will have enough. If you’re making this for more adults, I’d multiply the recipe as needed.
