Herby Cauliflower Mash

Herby Cauliflower Mash

This recipe is by far the most delicious cauliflower mash recipe and it’s so easy! The Kerrygold herb butter streamlines the process without sacrificing quality and it’s great for any lifestyle.

You can make this recipe ketogenic if you only use the cauliflower, low carb with the inclusion of parsnip, or offer a well-rounded macronutrient profile and thick consistency with a small serving of potato.

The most common mistake people make with cauliflower mash is adding liquid. Steamed or boiled cauliflower retains enough liquid for blending, all you need to add is an emulsifying fat to develop creaminess. If you like a thicker consistency a little parsnip or a potato will add the body you're looking for.
