Best Mashed Cauliflower Recipe
Mashed cauliflower is a healthy way to dupe mashed potatoes with all of the flavor, but a fraction of the calories. Plus, it's super easy and inexpensive too!
Servings: 4 cups (approx)
- 1 head cauliflower
- 2 tbsp butter More or less, to taste
- 1 tbsp cajun spice My fave is Tony Chachere's
- 1 tsp dried thyme substitute any herb of choice, like rosemary
- salt and pepper to taste
In a medium/large saucepan, begin heating water to boil while you prep the ingredients
Rough chop an entire head of cauliflower 1-2 inch pieces. Don't chop it too small!
Put chopped pieces of cauliflower into the saucepan of water. It's ok if it is not boiling yet.
Once the water starts boiling, boil cauliflower for 3-5 minutes, or until the largest piece is tender to a knife test (similar to how you test potato doneness)
When cauliflower is done boiling, pour over strainer to thoroughly drain water
Transfer cauliflower to a Ninja food processor, or another high powered food processor
Add butter, spices, herbs, and salt/pepper.
Blend until smooth and thoroughly blended! Enjoy!
