Easy Cauliflower Mash Recipe: A Quick Side Dish

Happy New Year!! Has everyone started their resolutions? Did you even make any? I think everyone usually says they are going to eat better in the new year so here is a healthier side dish option. It doesn’t take very long to make and it is super easy. Recipe below.


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cut your cauliflower into florets.
  2. Steam cauliflower.
  3. Place cauliflower in food processor or blender and combine milk, butter, salt and pepper.
  4. Blend until smooth.

My mash was a bit runny. You could probably use less milk. I also added a slice of cheese while I was blending to give it some extra taste. They were pretty good. Nothing beats mashed potatoes, but I think it’s a good alternative.
