Cheesy Mashed Cauliflower – Healthy!

Last night I tried out a new recipe on the husband, cheesy mashed cauliflower only healthy….I was skeptical I have to admit. The recipe that I followed actually called it Skinny Mashed Cauliflower and said it was a mashed potato substitute. Mine didn’t turn out quite like mashed potatoes but it was de-lish non the less. The recipe is from and it was fabulous! I absolutely loved it and so did the husband. I’m not a huge cauliflower fan but this was amazing. Okay now that I’ve gone on and on and on about it here is the recipe!

Cheesy Mashed Cauliflower


Course: Side Dishes

Prep Time: 5 Min

Cook Time: 35 Min

Total Time: 40 Min

Serves: 4


  • 1 head cauliflower trimmed
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken (or vegetable) broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream 
  • 2 oz reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut cauliflower heads to florets. Boil on medium-high heat with chicken broth and water until VERY soft (about 10-15 minutes), stir occasionally.
  3. Drain and return to pan. Mash well (to desired level of smoothness) and stir in remaining ingredients. (I kept mine a little more chunky and loved it)
  4. Put into a round 1½ quart baking dish (I used mini-casserole dishes for picture purposes), cover and bake for 20 minutes.

We paired this with a side salad and some turkey meatloaf and it made for a great cold weather comfort food meal that was satisfying and healthy! I hope you enjoy it!
