Expert Tips

Top this delicious mashed cauliflower with your favorite chopped fresh herbs, such as chives, basil or thyme.

Don’t skip the step of drying off cooked cauliflower thoroughly before pureeing; it prevents the finished mashed cauliflower from getting too runny.

For a cheesier mashed cauliflower, substitute your favorite shredded cheese for the Parmesan cheese.
