Mascarpone Mashed Cauliflower

Looking for a low carb side dish option? The added mascarpone to cauliflower is perfect, adding body, fat & flavor. Will be great served with any protein. I am having it here with a chicken breast & wilted spinach.

Mascarpone Mashed Cauliflower


  • Author: Chef Shelly

Description

A nice healthy low carb, gluten free side dish…


Ingredients

Scale

2 medium heads cauliflower, florets removed

6 oz. mascarpone, room temp

1/3 c. almond milk

kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Chopped chives or parsley, for garnish

Butter, for serving

 


Instructions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add cauliflower florets and cook until tender, 10 minutes. Drain well, pressing with paper towels or a clean dish towel to remove as much excess water as possible.

Return to pot and mash cauliflower with a potato masher until smooth and no large chunks remain.

Stir in mascarpone cheese and milk and season with salt and pepper and mash until completely combined and creamy. (Add a couple tablespoons more milk until you reach desired consistency.)

Garnish with minced chives or parsley, season with more pepper, and top with a tab of butter.
