Creamy Parmesan Mashed Cauliflower

Creamy Parmesan Mashed Cauliflower

Cauliflower is such a versatile vegetable!  You can roast it, boil it, and even mash it.  This easy cauliflower mash makes for a healthier replacement for mashed potatoes, and with its addition of Wisconsin cheese, you won't miss the potatoes one bit! Serve with chicken, pork, steak, or use as a Thanksgiving side.

  • 2 packages (10oz each) frozen cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 4 ounces Parmesan, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Bring cauliflower and milk just to a boil in a large saucepan, covered, over medium-high heat.  Reduce heat; simmer, covered, for 10-12 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.  Allow to cool slightly.
2. Transfer cauliflower mixture to a food processor.  Add cream cheese and Parmesan; cover and process until mixture is smooth.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.


  • Try replacing the cream cheese with Mascarpone for a silky, rich option!
  • Add roasted garlic, pesto, or fresh herbs while blending an amazing flavor
