This Roasted Cauliflower Mash has quickly become one of my most favorite sides. Growing up mashed potatoes were a staple on our table. My mom loved them and my grandmother loved them so anytime we could have them we would. Whether they were just the traditional recipe or something a little extra special like these Garlic Mashed Potatoes, it didn’t matter we loved them all and now I love this cauliflower version (trust me I cannot believe I just said that out loud). Let’s be honest though as we all get older sometimes a lower carb version is the better option… I mean not ALWAYS but sometimes.
Roasting is key
To really amp up the flavor in this Cauliflower Mash I roasted the cauliflower prior to mashing it. Roasting it really helps to add a toastiness and richness without having to add a ton of other stuff.
I literally threw in a little sour cream and some butter and voila we were done. Not only was it delicious but it was super quick making it the perfect side for the busiest of nights.
Blend it up
To make the mash super light and not too gummy I used my blender to whip it up super fast. Once the cauliflower was roasted I added it to the blender and gave it a whirl or two to break it up. I then added in garlic, a little sour cream and butter and let it go for a just a bit until everything was well combined and cauliflower was broken down.
Once in the blender you could add in additional flavor such as green chilies, cheese, cream cheese or additional herbs to amp up the flavor even more.
