  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook cauliflower in boiling water until tender, about 6 minutes; drain. Pat cauliflower dry with paper towel to remove as much moisture as possible.
  2. Blend cauliflower, cream cheese, garlic, and seasoned salt in a food processor until mostly smooth.

I made half the recipe, steamed the cauliflower for 3 minutes in the microwave, and used my immersion blender to mash the cauliflower (easy cleanup). The whipped cream cheese makes this incredibly "creamy," and this is so easy to make. This is the first mashed cauliflower recipe that I would consider an honest-to-goodness replacement for mashed potatoes. It's not only healthy for you, but it tastes wonderful.



Interesting recipe. I did not have whipped cream cheese, so I subbed 4 light laughing cow garlic and herb wedges. I slightly undercooked the cauliflower and the mashed blend was a bit grainy which is easily corrected by cooking slightly longer. It paired well with a baked tilapia loin (seasoned with a hint of grated parm. cheese and some of the Lawry's seasoning salt) and a hodgepodge blend of frozen vegetables from Trader Joes. We will have again when we're in the mood for something different.



Really good! I used part skim ricotta to lighten it up a bit and I would recommend this recipe for sure.
