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.
- 1 medium head
- 1 tablespoon
cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup
grated Kerrygold Dubliner cheese or Parmesan cheese
- 1 clove
- 1/4 teaspoon
chicken bouillon cubes
- 3 tablespoons
- 1/2 teaspoons
onion-herb seasoning blend
- 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.
- Serve hot with pats of butter and sprinkle with snipped green onion tops.
