Cauliflower Mash with Roasted Garlic

Easy Dinner Recipes, KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, Cauliflower Mash With Roasted Garlic Recipe, Food Lifestyle, Helena of Brooklyn Blonde

I know that different variations of cauliflower are all the rage right now. I’ve experimented with cauliflower pizza crusts, cauliflower ‘fried’ rice and one of my favorites, cauliflower mash. While there’s a time and a place for indulgent dishes, 80% of the time I’m on the hunt for healthy alternatives.

Today I’m incredibly proud to team up with KitchenAid® for recipe #2: an easy as hell cauliflower mash with roasted garlic. If you missed the first one, I shared a visually beautiful beet noodle recipe that you can find here.

Once again, I’m using the KitchenAid® Artisan® Stand Mixer to prep this cauliflower into a grated mash; this time with the help of the Fresh Prep Slicer/Shredder Attachment.

Mashed Cauliflower w/ Roasted Garlic

Serves 4 as a side dish or 2 as a main.

Appliances Used

Ingredients

  • 1 large cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 2 large cloves of roasted garlic (or 1 clove of raw garlic)
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp margarine (or if vegan, you can use a vegan alternative)
  • Salt & pepper

Preparation 

Chop the head of the cauliflower into small florets, then place in large pot filled with just enough water to cover. Bring the water to a medium boil, and then reduce heat to medium-low. Steam until florets are tender (takes about 6 minutes.)

Drain water from the cauliflower florets pot, and then place florets into large bowl before mashing using the Fresh Prep Slicer/Shredder Attachment. Once mashed, mix in remaining ingredients and add salt &, pepper, to taste. You can also sub regular salt for a garlic salt.

*It could be prepared to be a little chunkier, or to be a smooth consistency, depending on your preference.

Once you reach your desired consistency, top with a little bit of olive oil and fresh thyme or rosemary (or both!).

Notes:

The KitchenAid® Fresh Prep Slicer/Shredder Attachment comes with 3 blades, each designed for slicing or shredding specific fruits & vegetables in mind. I used the 4mm Medium Shredding Blade to mash the cauliflower florets, as it’s great for shredding firm vegetables, such as carrots, to a finer consistency. This blade is perfect for grated/shredded cheese as well.


After cooking 2 different recipes using my KitchenAid® Artisan® Stand Mixer with 2 different attachments, I was very pleased with not only how easy they were to use, but also with how much prep time I saved! Both the Spiralizer Attachment and the Fresh Prep Slicer/Shredder Attachment made cooking for my family even more satisfying and enjoyable.
