Pam Devine from LowCarbUSA® demonstrates one way of making cauliflower mash and talks about a few alternatives as well. This is such a great alternative for mashed potatoes for those who are concerned with restricting carbs or following a keto diet.
In the video, which is less than 15 minutes in length, Pam demonstrates the entire process, which involves baking a fresh head of cauliflower, adding a few more ingredients, and mixing in a food processor. She offers several variations, which will allow you to experiment and come up with your own perfect version of low-carb mash.
“We often use frozen cauliflower,” Pam explains in the video, “but I haven’t been able to find it in the store lately, so we went with a head of fresh cauliflower, which worked out very well. This recipe can easily adapted to taste by changing up the spices or adjusting the quantities of different ingredients.”
Here are the ingredients Pam uses in the video:
- head of fresh cauliflower
- heavy whipping cream
- garlic powder
- white pepper
Other ingredients you may wish to include:
- Italian spices
Pam bakes the fresh head of cauliflower in a pan with about a half inch of water, and covered with foil. She bakes it at 400 degrees for about 90 minutes. She removes the foil towards the end of the baking process to allow the cauliflower to brown.
After baking, Pam breaks the cauliflower (about 21 ounces) into pieces and places it into the food processor, along with 3 tablespoons of butter, 3 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and garlic powder and white pepper to taste.
This cauliflower mash would be the perfect complement to the delicious tri-tip roast Doug showed us how to make just a couple of weeks ago. Be sure to watch Super Tender, Medium Rare Tri-tip Roast In The Oven – a Video Tutorial.
