Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
10 mins 20 mins 30 mins 4 servings


  • 1 large head of cauliflower, cut into florets (about 4 cups or 480g)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream (60ml)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (45g)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add the cauliflower florets and cook for about 10 minutes or until tender.
  2. Drain the cauliflower and return it to the pot. Let it sit for a few minutes to remove any excess moisture.
  3. Using a potato masher or a food processor, mash the cauliflower until it reaches your desired consistency. If using a food processor, be careful not to over-process, as it can become too smooth.
  4. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  5. Pour the melted butter and garlic mixture over the mashed cauliflower. Add the heavy cream, grated Parmesan cheese, salt, and black pepper. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
  6. Taste and adjust the seasonings if needed. You can add more salt or pepper according to your preference.
  7. Transfer the cauliflower mashed potatoes to a serving dish. Garnish with freshly chopped chives or parsley for an added pop of color and flavor.
  8. Serve hot and enjoy your keto-friendly cauliflower mashed potatoes!
