Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

I actually fooled my husband with these, he really thought they were mashed potatoes and loved them, even after I told him!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine cauliflower, garlic and broth in a large saucepan. If the broth does not cover the cauliflower add water to cover.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low and simmer until cauliflower is fork tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. Drain cauliflower and garlic, reserving 2 tablespoons broth.
  4. Hand mash, or if you'd rather transfer to a food processor and process 'til smooth, adding broth if necessary to moisten mixture.
  5. Season with salt and pepper; add chives and parsley and stir.
  6. Serve hot.

I have made these quite alot. It's very good and tastes so much like mashed potatoes! I also add in a little paprika to give it a little color. I didn't add in the chives and it was still good! Wonderful side dish!

these were really good. I can taste the cauliflower, but not enough to make me go back to mashed potatoes. I will be making these again real soon. thanks.

I can't even get over delicious, nutritious, and EASY was this?? Nobody had a clue it was cauliflower until I told them, and at that point they were too busy shoveling it in to care. It sort of defeats the purpose of a low-cal dish to lick the pan clean, doesn't it LOL?? I have to admit I had butter at the ready to mix in to get that mashed potato-y taste, but I never had to use it. Great, great stuff. Made for Best of 2012 Tag, and it will be going into my cookbook for 2013.
