Mashed Cauliflower with Garlic

Mashed Cauliflower with Garlic

This dish was a staple in my diet in the good old days where I ate mostly low carb. Then came the pregnancy diet which allowed me to eat mashed potatoes and mashed sweet potatoes to my heart’s content! So, what used to be a fairly common side dish then became a rare treat for a while, and then came baby Sara, we introduced her to solids, like most parents, we first gave her mild tasting fruits and vegetables only to find out a few months later that she actually loves spices, herbs, onion and garlic and she especially loves this garlicky mashed cauliflower. It might sound odd but mashed cauliflower is a great alternative to mashed potatoes and makes a wonderful side dish to any grilled meat or poultry.

  • 1 large cauliflower
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 8-10 basil leaves
  • 4 oz. soft goat cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Wash and trim the cauliflower, cut into florets. In a large pot, add water and basil leaves, place the florets and garlic cloves on the steamer and steam until the cauliflower is very tender. Transfer the cauliflower into a colander and let the excess liquid drain.

In the bowl of a food processor, puree the cauliflower and garlic until smooth, add the goat cheese and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  • I love mashed cauliflower. I’ve used instead of potato on shepherds pie because it freezes better.

    Thank you for your comment Lynn, I make shepherds pie with mashed cauliflower too but never thought of freezing it, I love the idea! Will sure double the recipe next time.

  • Püre nefis görünüyor. Karnabaharı çok severim. Biraz değişik bir tarifle ben de yapıyorum sık sık. Ama keçi peyniri iyi fikir. Bir de böyle deneyeceğim. Sevgiler.

  • Bu güzel tarifi, ısrarla öneriyorum. İyi ki denemişim Megi, artık klasik karnabahar yemeği yapmıyorum. Şimdiye kadar 4 kere yaptım bu püreyi, ilk yemekli misafirime de yapıp onları şaşırtmayı düşünüyorum. Ellerin dert görmesin Megi.
