Garlic mashed cauliflower is a made from scratch healthy side dish to accompany any meal. Garlic and herbs give this dish a pop of flavor.

 

This is one of my favorite side dishes because it goes well with so many different dishes and is not only low in calories, but also low in carbs and is gluten-free. Mashed cauliflower is one of those side dishes that is practically for everyone no matter what type of diet they may follow. This year I plan on bringing this to the Thanksgiving table too, especially with the heavier dishes typically accompanied with Thanksgiving.

Any protein, such as pork, beef or chicken. Fresh vegetables like broccoli, carrots, green beans, peas or corn. It also goes well with stuffing and bread.

Making this cauliflower dish doesn’t require a lot of effort and can be made ahead of time and warmed up when ready to eat. First, I start with a head of cauliflower, and chop it up so I’m left with cauliflower florets. A shortcut is to buy cauliflower florets pre-packed as well. Add about an inch of water to a large pot, add the cauliflower florets to the water and bring to a boil. Let the cauliflower softly boil on medium heat until soft, about 10-15 minutes, then drain.

 

While the cauliflower is cooking, roughly chop the garlic cloves, rosemary and thyme. Place the cauliflower in a blender or food processor, add in the garlic, herbs, olive oil, milk and salt and pepper. Blend until everything is mix completely and cauliflower is at desired consistency.

 

How long does garlic mashed cauliflower last?

Cooked cauliflower will last for 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator stored in an air tight container. Properly stored in a freezer container or freezer bag, garlic mashed cauliflower will last about 10 to 12 months.
