This vegan cauliflower mashed "potatoes" recipe is my low carb, healthier solution to the standard spuds. This will come together in under 30 minutes, so it is perfect for those busy weeknights when you want to get a healthy dinner on the table without too much fuss.


  • 1 medium cauliflower head, florets only
  • 2-3 whole garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 T. unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • 1 t. onion powder
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 3 T. fresh chives, chopped



Place the cauliflower florets and the garlic cloves into a steamer basket set over a pot of gently boiling water. Cover and steam until the cauliflower is fork-tender, around 15-20 minutes.


Transfer the cauliflower and garlic to a food processor or blender and add the olive oil, almond milk, garlic powder, and onion powder. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and process until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust the seasonings, as desired.


Transfer to a serving bowl and top with fresh chives before serving. Enjoy!
