Healthy Mashed “Potatoes”


Healthy Mashed Cauliflower
  • 1 large head of cauliflower (2-2 ¼ lbs.)
  • 1 cup low-sodium broth (vegetable or chicken)
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 3 Tbsp. light or nonfat cream cheese
  • ¼ tsp. garlic salt
  • freshly ground black pepper and salt
  • freshly chopped chives and parsley (optional)


  1. Separate cauliflower into florets and chop core finely.
  2. In a pot, over high heat, simmer broth. Add cauliflower, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Cook until cauliflower is very tender, about 12-15 minutes.
  3. Drain and discard liquid (the drier the cauliflower is, the better). Add milk, cream cheese, and garlic salt. Mash together with potato masher until desired consistency is reached. For a creamier consistency, run the mashed cauliflower through a food processor.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top with fresh herbs and serve.
