Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes or Cauliflower

Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes



These mashed potatoes are easy to make and full of flavor. I even used this recipe to make mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes.

UPDATE: I have received a lot of questions on how to substitute the cauliflower in place of potatoes. I use a vegetable steamer to preserve the most nutrients while cooking the cauliflower. It takes about 20 minutes to steam a full head of cauliflower in the steamer. (Yes, I use the entire cauliflower to make this recipe). You may also boil the cauliflower 7 to 10 minutes if you do not have access to a vegetable steamer. Once the cauliflower is tender and almost falling apart, I add the milk, butter, garlic salt, chives, and Parmesan to the drained pot. Next, I take a hand mixer to whip the cauliflower mixture into a smooth and creamy texture. Enjoy!
