Hard to believe when you bite into this mashed potato look alike that it is cauliflower!

Cauliflower Mash Recipe


  • • 1 lb. bag frozen or fresh cauliflower
  • • 1/4 cup fat-free soymilk
  • • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • • 1 tsp nutritional yeast
  • • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • • 2 Tbsp water to mix with corn starch
  • • 1 Tbsp fresh parsley


  1. In a pot, steam cauliflower for 10-12 minutes or until very soft. Drain well using a colander. In a saucepan, combine soymilk, garlic, 1/4 cup water, Italian seasoning, poultry seasoning and yeast over medium heat. When it begins to boil, slowly mix the cornstarch/water mixture into the sauce, stirring constantly until thickened.
  2. When cauliflower is cool enough, squeeze as much water out as possible. Place the cauliflower in the processor or high-powered blender and blend for about a minute. Add sauce and fresh parsley to cauliflower and process until creamy and smooth. If it’s too thick, you may adjust the consistency by adding a little bit of soymilk. Makes 4 servings.
