Dairy free cauliflower mash
Serves: 3
  • 1 whole head of cauliflower
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • pinch sea salt
  • handful fresh parsley
  • 2 tsp chives
  1. First steam up cauliflower. Once soft and slightly cooled place cauliflower in blender (food processor would work too). Blend a little.
  2. Then add in seasonings.
  3. *do not have nutritional yeast – you can use cheese, almonds, or cashews
  4. **can put some butter or coconut oil in as well, maybe around 1 tbsp
  5. Adjust flavor to taste.
  6. Keep blending till smooth!
  7. Then have fun scraping it out of the blender, haha.
  8. Enjoy as side dish, or even as a snack.


A great side dish for dinner!

I love cauliflower mash! I made something similar just the other day–the post will go up shortly–that was a cauliflower and turnip mash. So good!

Does this recipe have to have yeast in it?

Sarah I gave substitutions above for the nutritional yeast 🙂

Ooh, I’ve never tried mashing it in my Vitamix. Great idea! I haven’t gotten cauliflower in a while.

Yum! I can’t wait to try this recipe. This is such a great idea for people like me who feel like they “need” some kind of starch to go with a meal. You should add “guilt free” to the title of this recipe, too! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

Wow this looks great. I love cauliflower but I need more ways to enjoy it since not everyone in the house loves it so much 🙂

Looks like you girls are one step ahead for a Thanksgiving post!Yum, this looks delish, and I look forward to getting a head of cauliflower!!!!

Mmmm….you can probably even use the mash to make a “shepherd’s pie”

that would be a great idea to try.

I just made this and the 1/4 cup of yeast was way too over-powering. I added more herbs and even some goat cheese but I couldn’t get past the yeast taste. Next time I’m going to try about a third of that amount.

I made this with scallions instead of chives & it came out bright green! Very delicious. Thank you for the recipe! I also cooked the garlic in some olive oil to caramelize it, then added both. I did not use any yeast or cheese, just a splash of whole milk. I think next time I may try fat free sour cream, to keep things low fat.
