Creamy Mashed Cauliflower


  • 1 large head cauliflower, core removed and cut into evenly sized florets
  • ΒΌ cup Ghee or butter
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon plain, unsweetened almond milk (as needed)


Remove cauliflower florets from core, cut into evenly sized pieces. Click here for a photo tutorial.

Place a couple of inches of water and a nice size pinch of kosher salt in a large pot. Fit with a steamer insert or follow the boiling directions from this Vegan Version. Once water is boiling, place cauliflower florets into pot and cover. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes until florets are very tender and almost falling apart.

Place Ghee and salt in the bowl of food processor. Carefully (I use a tongs as the florets will be very hot!) add steamed florets to processor.

Remove tube to allow steam to escape and process for 2 to 3 minutes until smooth.

Add freshly ground black pepper to taste and almond milk only if needed to loosen. Serve hot and Enjoy!
