To get the creamiest, silkiest mashed cauliflower, you need to have a few tricks under your belt.
- Remove as much stems as you can when cutting up the cauliflower. It may take a while to do that but well worth it.
- I like to cook my cauliflower in the microwave. If you'd prefer to cook the cauliflower on the stove top, you would need to use a steam basket. Cooking the cauliflower in the pot without a steam basket will add more water to an already water laden vegetable. Alternatively you can roast the cauliflower.
- Cook cauliflower till very soft so it blends easily.
- Use an immersion blender or a food processor. I used my ninja blender because it has blades that go right up and can serve as a food processor. I highly recommended a food processor or immersion blender is because it takes away the need for more liquid when puréeing the cauliflower which will be the case with a standard blender.
- Cream cheese and Parmesan cheese add flavor and texture to this keto mashed cauliflower 'potatoes '
