Mashed Cauliflower was something that used to scare me. Our family has adapted our eating for my husbands diabetes, I took on this beast. What I discovered is that Mashed Cauliflower can be amazing, and even the kids will eat it if done correctly! Here is my recipe!
- 1 Head of Cauliflower
- 2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese (reserve)
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 stick Butter softened
Seasoning to taste –
- 1 tsp dill
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
I start by chopping the head of cauliflower.
I steam this and preheat the oven to 400F
Then I prep all of the other ingredients – the sour cream, cheese, and butter. I also prepare the seasoning in a small bowl for easy combining.
Then when the Cauliflower is Al’dente I place it in the Food processor a few pieces at a time.
I then add the Butter, sour cream, and seasoning.
slowly add the cheddar cheese, and mix well.
Pour the Mashed Cauliflower into a greased 8×10 pan and cover with reserved cheese.
Cover with Aluminum foil, and bake at 400 for 30 minutes.
(you may remove aluminum foil after 30 minutes and broil for 2 minutes to toast the cheese if you desire)
I serve with steak or chicken, and a salad. Everyone in our family loves this recipe – and the carb count is low so no guilt about seconds!
