Cauliflower Mash

Mashed Cauliflower /  Cauliflower Mash is a perfect low carb dish and a great substitute for mashed potato. As we all know that cauliflower has a lots of nutrition value and off late, widely popularly used in Keto and Paleo diet. Many interesting recipes can also be prepared using this versatile veggie apart from the regular dishes like gobi fry, gobi manchurian etc. This Cauliflower mash is quite easy to prepare and takes less time compared to the mashed potatoes. The cauliflower florets is cooked in water or stock and then made into smooth puree. In this recipe, I have used only water to cook the florets but the addition of stock ( veg or non veg )  will enhance the flavour of the dish. I have shared the quite easiest mash without the addition of milk but if milk is included, then the puree has to be cooked along with milk and then cheese is added followed by herbs. And also, I have used cheese powder in this recipe which can also be substituted with the fresh ones. Cauliflower mash is a perfect light meal if you are in low carb diet or paleo or keto.

Ingredients :

25 - 30 Cauliflower florets
2 Tbsp Butter
1 Tbsp Basil, dried
3 - 4 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese powder
Salt to taste

Method :

Cook cauliflower florets in a water or stock.

Cool the florets and grind into smooth puree.

Transfer the puree in a bowl and add butter followed by dried basil, parmesan cheese powder and the required amount of salt.

Mix well and serve.

Serving Options :

Serve with any variety of gravy.

Notes :

Adjust the addition of basil and cheese powder according to taste bud.

I did not include milk in this recipe, so no further heating is required after making puree.

If milk is added, cook it again by adding milk, butter and remaining ingredients.
