Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

Serves: 4

This year, my goal is to have 3/4 of my plate filled with fruit and veggies. This is a healthy, tasty way to fill up the plate.

Dovetailing Tip: You already prepared the cauliflower for Meal 1. Because it is processed, you will only need to steam it for 5-7 minutes.

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Total Time:


1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, smashed
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon reduced-fat cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower, cover, and steam until tender, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until softened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

Transfer half the cauliflower to a food processor; cover and blend on high. Add remaining cauliflower florets, one at a time, until vegetables are creamy. Blend in garlic, Parmesan cheese, cream cheese, salt, and black pepper.
