Easy Thanksgiving Cauli-Mash Recipe

By Bryana Kay

Having food restrictions can be very upsetting, especially during Thanksgiving. It’s hard to know what to eat when you’re out and about at dinner. Needing a diet with limited carbohydrates limits your ability to eat many dishes such as mashed potatoes. After recipe developing for a couple weeks, I’ve come up with a cauliflower mash recipe! Of course, this does not resemble mashed potatoes to a T, but it should satisfy those cravings, while keeping your food troubles at bay. Cauliflower is an amazing vegetable full of nutritional benefits. One serving of cauliflower contains 77 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. It aids digestion, so you won’t feel bloated and groggy. It increases blood flow, fights cancer, is anti-inflammatory, and detoxifies. All you need for this recipe is two heads of cauliflower, pasture-raised butter, parmesan cheese, nutritional yeast, Kite Hill almond milk chive “cheese,” roasted garlic, black pepper, and sea salt. Here’s the recipe:


  • 2 heads of cauliflower
  • 3 tablespoons of pasture-raised butter
  • 2.5 tablespoons of parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons of Kite Hill almond milk chive “cheese”
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt (or more to taste)
  • black pepper to taste


Roast two garlic cloves in the oven at 400 degrees until nice and tender. Steam cauliflower until you can pierce a fork through. Add all ingredients into a food processor and process until it resembles mashed potatoes.Taste and add more salt, cheese, etc. depending on your preference.


“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.”
