Mashed Cauliflower

>The South Arm Cooking Club for Seniors served Mashed Cauliflower as the side dish for the Turkey Meatloaf instead of the regular mashed potatoes.  Mashed Cauliflower is popular among dieters, who crave for mashed potatoes but with lesser carbohydrates.


The Mashed Cauliflower is delicious, diet or no. It has the texture of mashed potatoes and the taste of cauliflower. Being Chinese, we seldom have mashed up food except food for baby.


  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into small florets (about 6 to 7 cups)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or butter
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons water or broth
  • sea salt to taste


This recipe is adapted from Whole Foods Market and it serves 4.  Helmut and Lorna made this very simple side dish.


Mashed-Cauliflower-002-300x200Steam or boil the cauliflower until very tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.
Mashed-Cauliflower-003-300x200Drain the cauliflower.
Mashed-Cauliflower-004-300x200Place in a blender or food processor.  Add olive oil and water or broth, one tablespoon at a time and blend until smooth consistency, similar to mashed potatoes, is reached.  Season with salt and serve immediately.

Helmut and Lorna, thank you for making this healthy side dish.

    Excellent idea, would have never thought of this myself. It’s so simple, and a great way to change up flavors at the dinner table when on a diet. Thanks
