Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

Oh! The mighty potato! How I love thee. This mashed cauliflower recipe doesn't taste like mashed potatoes, but it's a delicious side to add to any meal.

  • 1 Head Fresh Cauliflower
  • ¼ - ½ Cup Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tbs. Minced Garlic
  • Dash of Salt


  • Steam one head of cleaned and segmented cauliflower (do not boil).
  • Purée the steamed cauliflower with a food processor or blender to your desired creaminess.
  • Squeeze as much liquid out of the cauliflower purée as possible using a dish towel or (better) cheesecloth. Do not skip this step, this is the key to a potato like texture.
  • Add the cauliflower purée back into the food processor with coconut oil and garlic and blend well.


I like my cauliflower mash to be super garlicky and I like it with a lot of fat. Adjust to your liking and you can add whatever toppings you like.
