Cheddar Mashed Cauliflower

I had been wanting to try mashed cauliflower for a while and I found this recipe at Rachel Scultz.  This is SO easy and was really good.  I like cauliflower, but this is definitely a more enjoyable way of eating it.  I didn't add as much cheese as the original recipe so I could slim it down a little bit.  

1 head of cauliflower (washed)
1/2 cup fat-free cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated part-skim parmesan cheese
salt & pepper

1.  Cut the cauliflower into florets and boil f0r 6-7 minutes.  Use a fork to make sure they are tender.  

2.  Strain the cauliflower and blend it in a food processor or blender until it reaches your desired consistency.  Add in the cheese, salt, and pepper and process until mixed.  

3. Top with chives, if desired!

This was a great side to go with steak and corn on the cob!

A fourth of the recipe is approximately 118 calories! 



  1. This looks so delicious! I absolutely love cauliflower, I usually just roast it to give it lots of flavor or use it in casseroles, but this looks like such a delicious way to make it! Thanks for sharing, I'll definitely give this a try!!!

    1. Let me know how you like it - I really enjoyed it. Definitely a great way to enjoy cauliflower! I have never roasted it, I need to try that.

  2. Looks yummy! My kids love cheese so this looks like a clever vegetable disguise. Visiting from Tatertots and Jello.

    1. Tell them they're mashed potatoes - maybe they won't notice!!



I love getting comments and feedback from you!
