Rachael Ray's Smashed Cauliflower

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.

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!

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!

Great substitute for mashed potatoes. Non cauliflower lovers will also love this.

This was a great recipe, even if I didn't have cheddar cheeseand had to substitute. I"ll be sure to have it next time. Even my family members who don't like cauliflower liked this as said they would definately eat it again!
