Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Dec 31, 2023

If anyone tells you mashed cauliflower is just as good as mashed potatoes they are lying to you. This is a great mash up where the cauliflower adds to the flavor, but doesn’t take the place of a creamy potatoes.


  • 1 pound yukon gold potatoes (about 4 medium), peeled and chopped

  • 1 small cauliflower, chopped

  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  1. Put the potato pieces in a large pot, cover with about 2 inches of water, and generous pinch of salt and bring to a boil.

  2. Simmer the potatoes for about 10 minutes until they just start to get tender, then add the cauliflower and simmer until cauliflower and potatoes are tender, about 5 minutes more.

  3. Drain and let cool slightly. Then rice the potatoes and cauliflower with a potato ricer (or mash with instrument of choice) back into the pot. Add butter, cream, parmesan and mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
