Paleo Mashed Garlic Cauliflower “Potatoes”

21 Nov

cauliI can’t believe I have never made these. They are so easy and I almost fooled Joe into thinking they were actually potatoes! I made his favorite dish tonight. Meatloaf, mashed “potatoes” and green beans with cherry tomatoes and bacon. The green bean recipe is on here somewhere and I need to post the meatloaf still. But this side dish could almost fool anyone!


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2-3 tablespoons of chives
  • tablespoon of butter
  • salt/pepper

1. Take the cauliflower and cut it into little pieces. Throw that along with the garlic cloves into a steamer pot and steam until really tender.

2. Put your steamed cauliflower along with your garlic into a food processor along with the butter, salt and pepper. Blend until creamy smooth.

3. Transfer to a bowl and add your chopped chives and you are good to go!

I was surprised how similar they taste to regular mashed potatoes, same consistency and wtih the garlic and butter- same taste!

    Cauliflower is an essential in my kitchen. We use it for so many things. Will have to try the garlic and chives next time I make mashed.
