Mashed Cauliflower

Mashed Cauliflower

Super easy. You just need to steam the cauliflower until very, very soft. Makes a perfect topping for a low-carb Shephard's Pie.


head of cauliflower (either 1 large or 2 smaller heads)
2 tablespoons
olive oil
4 cloves
garlic ((optional))
carrots (white if you can find them)
1⁄2 teaspoon
salt and pepper to taste


Break up the cauliflower into pieces - doesn't have to be too small.
Steam the cauliflower pieces in a large pot until very tender.
Steaming takes 15-20 minutes, and the carrots may need more, so add them first.
Add the garlic and carrots to the pot to steam.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Puree the cauliflower in a food processor, use a hand mixer, or simply mash with a potato masher.
Add oil, salt and pepper.
Reheat in a casserole dish in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
