I found this recipe in a specials' flier from Publix supermarket. It's delicious! You can also substitute a bag of mixed cauliflower/broccoli for a tasty variation.


  1. Place cauliflower in microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Cover and microwave on HIGH 8 minutes.
  3. Stir in remaining ingredients and microwave 3-4 more minutes until tender.
  4. Process in food processor (or use hand blender) until smooth (about 30 seconds).

YUM! I made this using a 12 oz bag of frozen garlic flavored cauliflower which I think only enhanced the taste. My potato masher only diced up the cauliflower and didnt actually mash it but that wasnt a problem. My 7 yr old ate them with no issue. Thanks for a great recipe!

I followed the recipe until Step 4; here, I served the cauliflower whole, without mashing or processing. It came out fantastic and saucy! I also used a mixture of cheddar and pepper jack, which gave the cauliflower dish a nice light kick. I will be making this easy and tasty dish again!
