Gluten Free Cauliflower Mashed "Potatoes"

photo from
What a great healthy alternative to mashed potatoes! I made it dairy free (see italics), but if you are a lucky dog that can have butter, I suggest you go for it. I found this recipe here thanks to


butter sub like olive oil or earth's balance
teaspoon sea salt flakes
cloves garlic, peeled
gluten free chicken broth(I use Pacific)
large head cauliflower


  • Step1In 1-quart saucepan, heat butter, salt, garlic and chicken broth to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer 12 to 15 minutes or until garlic is completely soft. Set aside.
  • Step2In stockpot or Dutch oven, heat 3 quarts water to boiling over high heat.
  • Step3Cut florets from heads of cauliflower. If using stalks, cut stalks into 1/2-inch chunks. There should be about 8 cups raw cauliflower. Add cauliflower to boiling water; return to boiling. Cook 15 to 20 minutes or until cauliflower is extremely soft when pierced with knife. Remove from heat; set aside.
  • Step4Strain cauliflower well; pat dry thoroughly with towel. Place cauliflower in food processor. Add broth mixture. Cover; process until extremely smooth, processing in batches if necessary. Rinse out stockpot, and return to pot to combine batches.

Did You Know?

Don't skip the step of drying off cooked cauliflower thoroughly before pureeing. It prevents the finished mash from getting too runny.
Top the finished mash with chopped fresh herbs for a little pop of green.
Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
