Smashed Cauliflower

This was surprisingly delicious - make it in place of mashed potatoes...


  • 1 large head cauliflower cut into florets
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup shredded Vermont white Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Bring cauliflower and chicken broth to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Uncover the saucepan and increase heat to medium-high. Allow cauliflower to simmer until soft and the cooking liquid has reduced by half, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove cauliflower from the heat, and add the butter, Cheddar cheese, and Parmesan cheese. Mash with a potato masher until the cheeses have melted and the cauliflower is smooth, then season to taste with salt and pepper.


To change things up, use one of the hybrid Broccoli/Cauliflowers - just as yummy!
