Cauliflower Smash

Want something a little healthier than mashed potatoes? Try cauliflower, I smashed some with my hand blender and tested them, there is such smoothness and difference in the taste that any cauliflower hating husband or child will never know the difference. I will add pepper, butter and see what happens.


  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • butter
  • salt and pepper
  • milk(optional)

Loaded option:

  • shredded cheese
  • bacon/bacon bits
  • sour cream instead of milk


Break up the cauliflower head and wash. Place cauliflower in a vegetable steamer or any other kitchen steamer. Cook until tender with a fork as a cooked potato you’re going to smash.

Season with salt and pepper, add a little butter and blend together with a hand blender, potato masher or hand mixer, until smooth and looks like mashed potatoes.

Serve warm with extra butter or gravy, or add the loaded ingredients and have a blast.

Test the pickiest of eaters, they’ll never know. Our little secret ;-).

Serves 2-4
