Creamy, buttery Mashed Cauliflower with Garlic, Sour Cream and Parmesan is the low carb side dish that is a great alternative to mashed potatoes!
Prep: 15 Mins
Cook: 20 Mins
Total: 35 Mins
Serves as a side: 8
1 large head cauliflower cut into florets (about 3 pounds or 1 1/2 kg)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons sour cream
6 cloves garlic divided, (I roasted mine)
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
Salt and black pepper to taste
Place cauliflower in a steamer over a large pot of boiling water. Steam for 15 minutes until tender. Alternatively, boil cauliflower in salted water for 10 minutes or until fork tender. Remove and drain.
Cover with a lid and set aside.
In the same pot, heat the butter over medium high heat. Sauté garlic until fragrant (about 1 minute).
Blend cauliflower and garlic in a food processor on high setting until smooth. You may need to do this in batches of two or three, depending on the size of your processor.
Transfer blended cauliflower into the pot with the garlic. Stir in the Parmesan cheese, sour cream and season with salt and pepper.
Save prep time and use cauliflower rice instead! Steam the rice or sauté in a pan with a little water until fork tender.
