 Microwave Cheesy Garlic Mashed Cauliflower~

We love cauliflower in my family and eat it all the time.
When I saw this recipe,
I knew it would soon become a family favorite.
I can't wait to try this recipe in the fall,
when I can buy fresh cauliflower at the farmers market but
until then, store bought works just fine.

Microwave Cheesy Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup grated Kerrygold Dubliner cheese or Parmesan cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon chicken bouillon cubes
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoons onion-herb seasoning blend
Cooking Directions
  1. Clean and cut cauliflower into small pieces. Place cauliflower in a 1 1/2 to 2 quart microwave safe glass bowl. Sprinkle with a little water. Cover and microwave for 14 minutes. Let stand covered, 5 minutes. Add cream cheese, Dubliner cheese or Parmesan cheese, garlic, chicken bouillon granules and onion-herb seasoning blend. Blend well with an immersion blender or in a food processor, puree the cauliflower until almost smooth. Taste for salt and season if needed.
  2. Serve hot with pats of butter and sprinkle with snipped green onion tops.
