If you are looking for the most delicious mashed cauliflower recipe, you’ve come to the right place!
The ingredients are simple:
- 1/2 head cauliflower
- 1 x tablespoon butter
- Grated Parmesan
It’s low carb, it’s healthy, and makes a great addition to your meat for a main meal. This recipe is often used by low-carbers as a replacement to mashed potato, but seriously, this is MUCH tastier! So far, I’ve had it every night this week.
How To Make Mashed Cauliflower
(1) Cut your cauliflower into florets
(2) Put into a steamer and steam for 25 minutes (until very soft)
(3) Remove from the steamer and put on a plate
(4) Take a tablespoon of butter and mash it up with the cauliflower
(5) Now salt the mixture to taste. I find it’s better to salt it in its ‘spread-out’ state
(6) Now sprinkle on your grated parmesan
Mashed potatoes? Smashed Shmoshamtoes! I’ll take mashed cauli any day!
Quick shout out to the reader who first clued me in to the parmesan addition! I can’t remember who it was but if it was you, comment below and I’ll edit the post to give you the credit.

I like that it is really simple.
Thanks for the great recipe Mark! I could always use some more variety with low carbing.
I’ll give it a go tonight- hopefully i can trick the kids into eating it too.
Twenty five minutes is a long time to steam cauliflower. I cook mine on the stove for 15 min max for a full head. You can always poke with a fork to see if it is soft.
hey mark try cooking the cauliflower like a risotta.. but don’t add chicken/beef stock to the recipe. it’s amazing and thakns for the tip on replacing carbs with cauliflower. i’ve been so happy with this little vegetable over the past month or so.
