Helpful Recipe Tips
Thicker mash, parmesan cheese that's grated is a great way to do this. Honestly, outside of dairy the only way to make it thicker is less butter. This will result in a more chunky type of cauliflower mash. For a recommendation, cut the butter in half for this recipe.
Thinner mash, this one is easy the more liquid you add the thinner it will get. You can add so much it turns into soup. Try things such as heavy cream, sour cream or even more savory things like chicken stock.
Using heavy cream or sour cream, be careful with these. I have found it doesn't produce much flavor for either due to the strong taste of the cauliflower. It makes the mix very liquid-like if you aren't using something to thicken it back up. I don't include these but I do want you to know your options in playing with it.
Make it loaded, in the photos you'll see where I added sharp cheddar cheese and bacon. You can't go wrong with this.
