Calories 300kcal


  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup basil (freshly chopped, thyme and oregano)
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup pesto (freshly chopped, thyme and oregano)
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cauliflower (large
  • 1 white onion (freshly chopped, thyme and oregano)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup ghee (freshly chopped, thyme and oregano)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (freshly chopped, thyme and oregano)
  • ground black pepper (freshly chopped, thyme and oregano)
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese (freshly chopped, thyme and oregano)


  • Wash the cauliflower and cut into smaller florets.
  • Place on a steaming rack inside a pot filled with ~ 2 inches of water.
  • Bring to a boil and cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Do not overcook.
  • You can also bake the cauliflower in the oven.
  • To do so, preheat the oven to 225 °C/ 450 °F.
  • Place the florets on a baking tray and transfer into the oven.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes.
  • This is a fool-proof method for those who get watery mash.
  • However, if you steam (not boil) your cauliflower, you shouldn't get watery mash.
  • Heat a pan greased with 2 tablespoons of the ghee and add chopped onion and garlic.
  • Cook for about 5 minutes until slightly browned.
  • Keep stirring to prevent burning and take off the heat.
  • Place the cooked cauliflower into a blender and add the cooked onion and another 2 tablespoons of butter or ghee.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pulse until smooth and creamy.
  • I'm using my Kenwood mixer with a blender attachment.
  • For an even creamier texture, add soured cream or cream cheese (or skip for dairy-free).
  • Enjoy!
