What Does Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes Taste Like?

Given there is a lack of starch they are a bit looser than traditional potatoes. No, they are not runny at all. In the frozen cauliflower mash you will find they add carbs by putting in starch for thickening. That isn’t needed! Homemade cauliflower mash is just as thick as the starch added ones. In my recipe you won’t be able to tell this is cauliflower. Adding toppings and season offset the cauliflower taste. Not to mention, the butter and cream added.

Dairy-Free and Vegan options

  • Remove butter and replace with a oil such as olive oil or coconut.
  • Sub heavy cream for coconut cream. 
  • You can even sub them both and double whatever fat you’d like to add. Adding something high fat gives the mash body.

Cauliflower Mash Toppings or Loaded options

  • Red wine vinegar onion (recipe below)
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Uncured Bacon
  • Chives
