Cauliflower Mash

I present to you the easiest side dish you will ever make! Not to mention, its also low-carb in case you’re pretending you still care about that shit.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 head of cauliflower, chopped and stems removed
  • olive oil
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream cheese (or regular)
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese


  1. Add chopped cauliflower to large pot and cover with water. Use just enough water to cover the cauliflower.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over cauliflower, this will help soften it while cooking.
  3. Set temperature to high on stovetop and cover pot with lid until boiling.
  4. Once boiling, stir ingredients.
  5. Occasionally stir ingredients to help water and olive oil absorb into cauliflower, and break down into smaller chunks with wooden spoon as it softens.
  6. Once all the water is absorbed and cauliflower is “mashed”, add in butter and combine.
  7. Add in cream cheese, stir.
  8. Add in parmesan and salt and pepper to taste.

You should have a nice thick consistency, almost identical to mashed potatoes. You can also optionally add garlic powder or any other type of seasoning according to your taste.
