Cheesy Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

This cheesy cauliflower mashed potatoes recipe is awesome! We tried this recipe the other night for dinner and my little girl LOVED it. She asked for seconds twice!! If your kids have a hard time eating cauliflower, you might want to give this recipe a try before putting cauliflower to rest.



1 med head cauliflower

1 T cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese, or Parmesan

1/2 tsp minced garlic

1/2 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper



1. Bring to boil a pot of water over high heat. Cut cauliflower into small pieces and add to boiling water. Cook for about 6 minutes, or until well done. Drain well; quickly pat dry with several paper towels.

2. Place cauliflower in a bowl along with cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic, salt and pepper. Blend with an immersion blender until smooth.

3. Serve hot. Garnish with chives for some added flavor.


NOTE: I used mild cheddar cheese because that’s what we had on hand, but I’d imagine that medium or sharp cheddar would be really good.
