Cheesy Cauliflower Mash

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"I first ran across this dish at Ruby Tuesday®. It's a great change from mashed potatoes and can be just as versatile. Cream adds to the richness of the dish. Use any type of cheese you like, or leave it out to reduce calories. Many different types call for a food processor but I found my hand mixer does the job even better. Bon appetit!"

  1. Mix cream and chicken bouillon granules together in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium until granules are soft, 20 to 30 seconds; set aside.
  2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower, cover, and steam until very tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain and place in a large bowl.
  3. Mash cauliflower using a hand mixer on low speed, about 1 minute. Add cream mixture and increase speed to high; mix together until creamy, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle in shredded Cheddar cheese, seasoned salt, and garlic powder. Stir by hand until well-mixed and serve.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can save time by using frozen cauliflower. I prefer using fresh because it doesn't hold as much water when boiled.
  • The more you blend, the creamier it will be; blend less for a chunkier texture.

It was good, I did have to add a little more flavor to it, but with the right amount of seasonings, I would make it again

After all recipes managed to delete my entire account.. I tried to search and find my recipes. This is not the correct picture for this recipe but it is mine. This is the first attempt at making...

This was a very easy recipe to put together. I did add more cheese and added chopped bacon, to the top. Came out pretty good.

This really has potential but as it is, lacks the great flavor I expected. I love cauliflower but this recipe need a little boost in the flavor department.
