Rachael Ray's Smashed Cauliflower

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by paigeteaches

I found this recipe on a recent Rachael Ray 30 minute meals show and loved it! Smashed Cauliflower with cheeses. Rachael Ray used fresh cauliflower...I found it really expensive in the store, so I tried frozen...still so very good...everyone in my family LOVED it! She also said it was a low carb substitute for mashed potatoes. I am giving you MY recipe for the same dish.

I cannot give this enough stars. I used frozen cauliflower, sharp cheddar cheese and the new McCormick's Perfect Pinch in Parmesean Herb. This is wonderful and my DH had 3 helpings. A definite winner!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring chicken broth to a boil (Rachael Ray used beef broth).
  2. Add frozen cauliflower.
  3. Boil for about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Drain -- in case there is too much liquid -- Add cheeses, butter and more broth if it is too thin for your taste.
  5. Smash with a masher. Should be the consistency of mashed potatoes.-- yum!
