Holiday Recipe Ideas – Mashed Cauliflower

Everybody loves mashed potatoes, but why not try mixing it up every now and then? How about mashed cauliflower? I’ve been on a cauliflower kick recently. I’m not sure why, but I’m liking the recipes that are coming of it! This would make a perfect side dish for almost any holiday meal.



1 head of cauliflower
2-3 shallots
2 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp vegan butter
1/4 – 1/3 cup of bread crumbs
garlic powder


  • Cut or break up the cauliflower into small – medium pieces. Steam the cauliflower until tender and mash-able.
  • Thinly slice the shallots and mince or press the garlic. Saute them in a little bit of olive oil.
  • Drain the water from the pot and put the cauliflower in the pot. Add the vegan butter and let it melt. Mash the cauliflower with a fork. I like to leave it a little bit chunky.
  • Stir in the breadcrumbs, shallots, and garlic. Add the salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.
