The Only Keto Cauliflower Mash Recipe You’ll Ever Need

Stop your search for the perfect Keto Cauliflower Mash – I’ve got you sorted!

I never thought this day would come, but my non-cauliflower liking husband now eats cauliflower mash. He actually said he didn’t mind it. 

Now I get that might not sound like a glowing review, but this Keto mash recipe has transformed his feedback from “what is that gross smell?” to “this isn’t bad at all.”

In the world of honest recipe feedback, I’ll take it! We loved it especially paired with my Keto Swedish Meatballs.

After trying so many different combinations and flavour add ins, this is the best Keto cauliflower mash I’ve been able to come up with.

I think the key is in the simplicity – the butter and cream cover up the cauliflower taste just enough that it could almost pass for the original thing. I have come to prefer this keto mash recipe over normal mash potato – bland old potatoes, who needs them?

It is also surprisingly pretty if you top with a little bit of melted butter and some chopped parsley or chives. Serve this up to a dinner party and no one will be complaining about cauliflower!

I use a thermomix to blend up my cauliflower, but you can use any food processor, blender or bar mixer. Be warned though – careful blending hot things! Use precaution as the cauliflower will be VERY hot.

I bought my thermomix about 4 years ago now, just before the new model came out. I was pretty peeved, because I had mine for literally 3 weeks before the new model was released – with amazing new features, electronic recipe chips and a sleek new design. For the same price I had paid.

When I am asked if I would recommend the thermomix, I find I justify my owning one with keto cauliflower mash! I don’t know if a normal food processor could get the mash quite as silky smooth as the TM does.

If you have a whizz bang food processor that can totally blast cauliflower into fluffy mash, let me know in the comments below so everyone else can rest assured!

When you are steaming the cauliflower, you really want it to be as tender as possible. This usually takes 5 – 6 minutes in my microwave for 1/2 head of an averaged sized cauliflower.

I pair this mash with so many dishes, but it goes especially well with slow cooked stews and the like. It is my go to keto side dish for just about anything that has lots of sauce.

I am working on a chicken in burnt butter recipe at the moment, and I’ll think I’ll even pair it with this mash!

Here are my favourite recipes I pair this keto cauli mash with regularly;

Keto Beef Cheeks with Cauliflower Mash

Keto Lamb Shanks Slow Cooked, Cauli Mash & Green Beans

Keto Swedish Meatballs

The Best Keto Cauliflower Mash

Simple to prepare and with a beautiful smooth texture, this keto cauliflower mash can almost pass as the real thing! 

Course Main Course
Cuisine American
Prep Time 3 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 13 minutes
Servings 4 sides
Calories 97 kcal

Ingredients

  • 400 grams cauliflower about half a head
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  1. Cut the cauliflower into small florets and steam. I usually use a microwave safe container with a splash of water, and steam until completely soft and falling apart. In my microwave, this is usually about 6 - 7 minutes. 

  2. Once falling apart, blend the cauliflower with cubed butter, cream, salt and pepper. Depending on the strength of your blender.food processor this could take 30 seconds - 2 minutes. 

  3. Scrape down the sides as required and continue blending until you are left with a smooth, fluffy mash. 

  4. Note if it doesn't blend smoothly, the cauliflower should have been cooked longer. When in doubt, cook it more not less! You can't overcook it like potato, so keep cooking until a fork goes through the cauliflower like butter.
