Creamy Cauliflower Mash (Keto)

Keto Creamy Cauliflower Mash

Some may turn their nose up at mashing up cauliflower to mimic The Great Potato, but if you try it like this – you will be converted. I didn’t just stop at using a potato masher, I added full-fat cream cheese and then blitzed the mixture into a creamy, (dreamy) puree. All it needed was a little seasoning and it’s perfect as a side dish to mop up all those lovely flavours of your dish. You could also use it like I did to top my Low-carb Seafood Bake and Spicy Low-carb Cottage Pie.

Instructions
  1. Trim the cauliflower into equal-sized pieces.
  2. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Add the cauliflower florets and cook until they have softened completely, this can take up to 20 minutes. To test, pierce a floret with a fork and it should slide off instantly.
  3. Drain well in a colander or large sieve and leave to steam off for a few minutes.
  4. Mash immediately using a potato masher, adding the cream cheese halfway through. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. For extra creamy mash, place the mixture into a mini food processor and blitz until smooth.
