Mashed Cauliflower


We love mashed potatoes.  We love cauliflower.  We love eating healthy during the week.  So it makes perfect sense that we would love to make this mashed cauliflower (in lieu of potatoes) during the week.

So much healthier than mashed potatoes, equally as delicious, and unbelievably easy and fast.

DISCLAIMER: I am not going to pretend these taste just like mashed potatoes and that you should substitute them always.  I love creamy, rich, fatty, mashed potatoes.  But once you reach your 30s, your body needs to pick its battles.


  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoon cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup skim milk

Steam cauliflower about 10-15 minutes until very tender. Drain water and keep over low heat for several minutes to dry it out (the dryer the better).  Mash with a mashing utensil, or for a creamier consistency puree with a food processor.  Mix in the remaining ingredients.

Yep. That’s it.
