Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

Updated: Aug 13, 2022

1 head cauliflower, cut into florets

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 clove garlic, smashed

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon reduced-fat cream cheese

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower, cover, and steam until tender, about 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until softened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

  3. Transfer half the cauliflower to a food processor; cover and blend on high. Add remaining cauliflower florets, one at a time, until vegetables are creamy. Blend in garlic, Parmesan cheese, cream cheese, salt, and black pepper.

***Please note: If you don't have a food processor you can still make this! Just cook the cauliflower a little longer so that it's very soft. Then, transfer to a bowl and use a potato masher. The result is more of a “cauliflower rice”, equally tasty and nutritious, but not as creamy.
