Mashed Cauliflower is essentially a creamy cauliflower puree that makes a delicious low-carb or Keto alternative to mashed potatoes.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium head cauliflower (cut up into florets)
  • 4 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1/3 cup 1% buttermilk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp salted butter (plus optional more for serving)

Instructions

  • Steam or boil cauliflower and garlic until soft.
  • Drain the cauliflower, then add buttermilk, butter, salt, pepper and purée with an immersion blender. (If you don't own a hand blender, you should consider getting one. It is one of my most used gadgets in my kitchen, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it!) A regular blender would work fine as well.
