This cauliflower mashed potato recipe takes a traditional favorite to the next level. This dish is creamy, silky, and flavorful – and super easy to make! No one will ever know you snuck cauliflower into the potatoes.
I know, I know. WHO is this crazy lady throwing cauliflower into the mashed potato mix? Uh. It's me, your friend, Jordan. And you HAVE to hear me out on this one. I am a big fan of wonderful, traditional mashed potatoes. At any given holiday gathering, you can guarantee that 75% of my plate's real estate is going to be mashed potatoes. BUT – I also love cauliflower.
We were recently shooting a video for this potato and cauliflower soup when I started thinking of other ways to combine the two ingredients. Cauliflower makes things creamy and silky... things like mashed potatoes. 💡💡💡 So now that you know the general thought process that brings us here today...
...let's talk about this Cauliflower Mashed Potato situation.
- This recipe is incredibly easy and fool-proof. You boil the cauliflower and potatoes together for the same length of time. Then you drain, combine additional ingredients, and blend.
- The finished result tastes incredibly buttery with a subtle hint of garlic (garlic being completely optional.)
- No one will ever know that you hid cauliflower in the mashed potatoes. They'll be too busy trying to figure out how you made the creamiest, most irresistible taters EVER.
- There is no cream. There is no butter. But no one will believe you when you tell them that. 😘
Do you guys already have your Thanksgiving plans laid out? We hosted a Friendsgiving last year, which was super fun! But we're thinking something more low key sounds nice this year. Maybe a non-traditional meal with just the two of us – three, counting Scout!
What's your favorite holiday dish or recipe? Like I said, I'm here for the mashed potatoes. 😂 I do love sugar cookies and buckeyes though.
Are you going to any Halloween parties/are you dressing up this year? Clark and I are debating between being Forrest Gump and Jenny again (from a different stage in the movie). OR something from Game of Thrones. It's a tough call.
Does it usually snow on Christmas in your neck of the woods? We're hoping for a white Christmas in Colorado! We were home for Christmas last year so I have no idea whether or not it snowed here. It's pretty much the one day of the year that I can tolerate snow. 😂
Well, that's all for today folks! Make these cauliflower mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving and or Christmas and or any random weeknight dinner. Then tell me what you think!Print
