Low Carb Cauliflower Mash Recipe

My long awaited Cauliflower Recipe is posted below.


Cauliflower Mash Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Serving Size: 4


  • 1 bag cauliflower florets or 1 head of cauliflower chopped into small florets. (I use the bag of fresh cauliflower florets from costco)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tbs or 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbs cream cheese
  • 2 tbs butter
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese for topping, or to thicken mixture
  • Optional ingredients:
  • 2 tbs cream
  • Bacon bits
  • Food Processor- I use my mini 3 cup Cuisnart food processor. The exact link to mine is located under my product recommendations.


  1. Boil Cauliflower until fork tender. (10-15 mins)
  2. Drain cauliflower and put into food processor.
  3. Add sour cream, butter, parmesan cheese, 1/2 of the shredded cheese mix, salt and pepper to food processor.
  4. Turn on food processor and grind/chop until the mixture is finely mashed/mixed with no lumps.
  5. Add remaining cheese to the top of your cauliflower mash when done.
  6. **If your mixture is too watery, add more parmesan or shredded cheese. If the mixture is still a little bit lumpy, you can add a touch of heavy cream or sour cream, and blend again until mixture is smooth.**

You can also top the mash with bacon, or bake the mixture if you want a more “twice baked mash” — I highly recommend my friend Suzanne’s twice baked recipe which can be foundΒ here.
