20 Minute Mashed Cauliflower Recipe – How to Make Creamy Mashed Cauliflower
24 Comments


We’re Adam and Joanne from inspiredtaste.net and welcome to our kitchen. We’re making a simple and creamy mashed cauliflower recipe. We’re going to cook the cauliflower by boiling for about ten minutes… so fill a pot with some water… then put it onto the stove… and bring to a boil. While that happens you can prep the cauliflower… just remove the green leaves from the
base… then use a knife… to cut around the core… pull that out… and then pull or cut the cauliflower into
pretty large florets. Add them to a colander… then rinse. Once the water is boiling… add a generous amount of salt… then add the cauliflower. You want to cook the cauliflower for about ten minutes… When done it should be fork tender. Now drain… place the pot off the heat, add the cauliflower back into the pot… cover and let steam for about two minutes. Add the cream cheese… about one and a half ounces of it… some salt… freshly ground black pepper… and a little nutmeg. Grab a potato masher and mash until creamy. And thats it! Simple creamy mashed cauliflower.

  1. Try roasting the cauliflower in the oven and then applying the same mashing technique with the cream cheese. Been making it that way for years and it is fantastic.

  2. Love this tutorial, it is short and to the point. it is my first time making mashed cauliflower and it tasted great . Thanks for posting and I am looking forward to some more simple recipes like this.

  3. Thank you for coming back to leave a comment. So glad you liked the video and that your recipe turned out great.

  4. I use frozen cauliflower instead of fresh. Much easier and cheaper. I microwave without water for about 6 minutes or till very tender.

  5. after going through alot of videos, I like yours better because you use almost everyday tools. I personally don't have a steamer and a food processor.

  6. I process my raw cauliflower (include stems) in my Cuisinart until it's granular and all the same size particles. I DO NOT boil or steam it. I find it tends to absorb too much water and you get mushy results. I then sauté the granules in a bit of olive oil with garlic salt and pepper. Cooks pretty fast. Maybe 10-15 minutes. The end result will look like a "mealy" mashed potato. Very good. I did enjoy the video. Thanks.
