Flavouring Options


  • Cook the cauliflower in boiling water until soft. Remove from the heat and drain well.
  • Let all the steam escape, otherwise, you will get soggy mashed cauliflower, and no one wants that.
  • Add butter, garlic, or any other optional flavours to taste and puree with a stick blender with the blade attachment until smooth.
  • If using bacon and cheese, stir through after the mashed cauliflower is smooth, rather than blend with the stick blender.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
