This is by far my favorite side dish. I love cauliflower and I usually eat it 1 to 3 times a week. I could eat and entire head to myself ( even though I wont) and since I switched to mashed cauliflower I knew I would never go back to basic potatoes again. I just feel like cauliflower is so much creamier and has tons of flavor. Shockingly my family doesn’t even mind me making it instead of the normal mash potatoes. I am slowly turning them secret low carb ( hahaha).
I have a ninja professional blender that makes things so much easier and I must say I have a few more keto tools, it just makes life so much easier
**I have to say I have a few must haves for this keto diet: a blender, a mixer, a food processor, a hand blender and an oven/grill
Cheesy Cauliflower Mash
1 head of cauliflower
1 oz heavy whipping cream
4 oz cream cheese softened
4-6 oz shredded cheddar cheese
Pinch of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder
1 C Chicken broth
1 C water
- Fill a pot with chicken broth and water and bring to a boil. Add more broth and water if needed.
- Break cauliflower down and try and remove most of stems. ( stems give it a strange taste) Once water is boiling add cauliflower and boil till tender.
- In a blender add cauliflower without water. Add cream cheese, heavy whipping cream, 2-3 oz of cheddar cheese and spices. Blend until smooth you can add a little of the broth or more heavy whipping cream to make it the consistence you like.
- Once blended and creamy place in a dish and mix in remaining cheese. Serve
