Easy Keto Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes – Ingredients and food processor

Easy ingredients & easy process

It’s just super convenient to pull some cauliflower out of the freezer and whip up a homemade side dish when needed! Boiling cauliflower in chicken broth is a both a flavorful and fast way to cook them. The secret to perfect cauliflower mash is adding plenty of Romano or Parmesan cheese, which gives them a deeper and oh so delicious flavor.

Hip Tip: For best results, consider grating fresh Pecorino Romano cheese instead of Parmesan (it’s Collin’s favorite, and she explains why HERE).

Easy Keto Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes – Adding ingredients to the food processor

After boiling your cauliflower, drain it very well, and then transfer the cauliflower to a food processor. If you don’t have one, try a high-powered blender, or just mash by hand. Then just process (or mix) the cauliflower with cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. This couldn’t be more simple!

P.S. Don’t let that chicken broth go to waste. Use it to make a delicious gravy!

Note from Collin:

My daughter is a HUGE mashed potato fan, and I was so excited when she literally devoured these cauliflower mashed potatoes and asked for more. When she asked for seconds, she called them mashed potatoes, so apparently she could hardly tell a difference – and I think that’s due to the Pecorino Romano… it’s the BEST!
