Recipe of the Week: Low-Carb Mashed Cauliflower

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


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


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.
