Whipped Cauliflower Mash

This is probably one of the easiest, and most satisfying side dishes I make. It's always a crowd pleaser, and it's always entertaining to watch guests think it's mashed potatoes! I whip up my cooked cauliflower in the blender for super fast cookin' - but you can mash by hand if you'd like to
give your arms a good workout.


Whipped Cauliflower Mash 
(that taste like mashed potatoes)
by Sarah Farsh December 26, 2012

  • 2 heads cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 tbsp tahini (sesame seed butter)
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • sprig thyme for garnish
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add in cauliflower florets, and steam in boiling water for about 7min. Drain cauliflower and transfer into blender (or a large mixing bowl). If using a blender, you will have to blend in a couple separate batches. Blend cauliflower using tamper to get all pieces mashed. Add tahini into blender with one of the cauliflower batches. Poor the batches of cauliflower mash into a bowl, and add in nutritional yeast, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Mix well, and garnish with fresh thyme.
