I don’t care if it’s summer or not, mashed potatoes are ALWAYS something I want on the side of my plate and these keto friendly Mashed Faux-Tatoes are absolutely epic!

Did you know that Cauliflower is 90% water so adding more water to the mix won’t help the erm ‘soggy’ situation. I have made cauliflower mash quite a bit and I have always boiled it first and then blended it which understandably, resulted in a very gloopy and not at all appetising paste 💩The good news is that by simply ROASTING the cauliflower you will massively change the texture of your Mashed Faux-Tatoes into a more fluffy, desirable and oh so buttery consistency 😀

The awesome thing about these Mashed Faux-Tatoes is that you can use them to top pies, hello Shepherds pie anybody? You could also use it to make fish cakes or deep fried cheesy mash bites 😍. Lots of options, very little effort required and the perfect low carb dinner accompaniment!

  1. Firstly, preheat oven to 400°F/200°C and break up the cauliflower head into florets.
  2. Next, transfer to a large sheet pan and drizzle with the oil, salt and white pepper. Roast the garlic cloves alongside. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until it just begins to brown.
  3. Then, blitz the cauliflower with the sour cream, butter, and roasted garlic.
  4. Season heavily with salt, white pepper and nutmeg to taste.
  5. Reheat right before serving with your favourite meat!
