This was my first time to make mashed cauliflower, and from what I gather, I was pretty lucky to find one that had the consistency of real mashed potatoes! This recipe makes wonderfully thick and creamy mashed cauliflower – so similar to mashed potatoes because they are the perfect consistency!

Creamy Mashed Cauliflower, from


  • 1 Medium Cauliflower, chopped into small florets
  • 4 oz. Cream Cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder plus 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning


Bring a pot of water to a boil – once boiling, add the cauliflower florets and cook for 10 minutes (until you can poke a fork into the cauliflower easily).

Drain the cauliflower.

Place the cooked cauliflower into a blender or food processor. Add the remaining ingredients. Cover and blend/process until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed and there are no lumps.

Turn out into serving dish and top with shredded cheddar cheese, if you like!

I slightly adapted this recipe from one I found on – be sure to check them out! Great recipes, craft ideas, travel ideas and more!
