Cauliflower Mash

I am 100% unquestionably addicted. And I don’t normally even like cauliflower that much. But as a healthy, starch-free alternative to mashed potatoes? I have fallen off the train of sanity and could eat this with every meal. It’s super easy to prepare, too. Ridiculously easy. And I’m showing you pictures of how to do it!

Cauliflower Mash

Ingredients

  • 1 Large Bunch of Caulifower
  • 1-2 Tbsp Whole Grain Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tbsp Creamy Horseradish
  • Sea Salt to taste

Remove leaves and cut florets from stem.

Place florets into a pot and fill with about an inch of water. Place on stove over medium/high heat with the lid on top. This is how I steam my cauliflower; if you have a different method, go for it! I leave it steaming for about 10 minutes, that usually does the trick.

Remove pan from heat. Pour excess water out through a strainer. Return cauliflower to pot and mash up the florets with a potato masher. Add mustard and horseradish and continue to mash mash mash until desired consistency is achieved.

This can be served hot, but is just as good cold from the fridge! This recipe is enough to serve 4 people. I generally make it for dinner for myself and have enough for lunch and dinner the next day… And I enjoy every minute of it!

You can totally experiment with the flavors, too. I can’t wait to do that myself, but right now the Dijon and Horseradish have me hooked. Completely.

Beautiful whole mustard seeds. LOVE!

    Mmmm, dijon mustard is one of my favourite things– I will have to try this!
    I once made a veg shepperd’s pie using cauliflower mash instead of potato– it was a nice substitution, although I have yet to get the filling quite right!

      Ooh yum! That sounds amazing and something I definitely had not thought of doing! Now I think I’m going to have to experiment with that idea… 🙂

    I know this a good low carb alternative but as you, I don’t particularly cauliflower. Your mustard combination sounds nice. How was the texture? No need for milk?

    Rachel,

    This looks SUPER YUMMY! I love mashed cauliflower anyway, but the addition of the mustard and horseradish makes me hungry just thinking about it! Thanks for another great recipe.

    I’m a little dubious, but I’m going to try it… Fingers crossed. I like cauliflower, but have never even thought to mash it. And bonus – low carb sounds perfect right now!!! Thanks for sharing. Great pics too btw 🙂

    Great idea. My current cauliflower obsession is to have it roasted with ginger flavoured oil – this looks like it could sneak into the lead though 🙂
