Keyword: Mashed cauliflower
Servings: 6 to 8 servings
  • 1 large head of cauliflower, washed and cut into florets
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp kosher salt (1 1/2 tsp if using fine salt)
  • 3 tbsp roasted garlic (from 1 head of roasted garlic)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
  1. Steam the cauliflower florets for 10 minutes or until tender. We used a vegetable steamer.

  2. While the cauliflower is steaming, heat the butter, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium pot on medium heat, until the garlic's melted. Note, break/mash the roasted garlic apart in the pot using a couple of forks while the butter heats up.

  3. Add the steamed cauliflower florets, garlic butter mixture and buttermilk to a large food processor. Process with the chopping blade for 30 seconds or until the mashed cauliflower looks smooth.

  4. Add the mashed cauliflower and chives to a large serving bowl and mix well until incorporated.

  5. Serve hot. Enjoy!
