This this fluffy mashed cauliflower recipe turns healthy cauliflower into the best ever cauliflower mashed potatoes. They taste just like mashed potatoes and are so creamy, all while being low carb and keto-friendly!
Steam: Start up a large pot of boiling water, with a steamer basket positioned over it. Chop the cauliflower into chunks, removing the tough inner stem. Transfer to the steamer basket, cover with a lid, and cook for 15 minutes, or until cauliflower is fork-tender.
Brown Butter (optional): Meanwhile, add butter to a pan (use a light colored pan if possible so you can see the change in color) and place over low/medium heat. Melt butter, then add minced garlic. Continue cooking. Butter will first bubble, then after 5 or so minutes will begin to darken. When little dark bits begin to form and the butter has darkened to the color of light caramel, remove from heat.
Puree: Place cauliflower, cream cheese, salt, and pepper in a food processor and puree until smooth and creamy.
Serve: Serve warm, optionally topped with a drizzle of brown butter.
