  • 30 oz frozen cauliflower ; or 1 large head, cut into florets
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 cup sour cream ; use low fat or fat free for a FP
  • 1 tablespoon butter (cold from fridge) ; reduce to 1/2 tablespoon for a FP
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg ; you can use more if you like the tase, but be careful not to overdo it
  • salt and pepper ; to taste
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheese ; I used a cheddar blend - use 1 tablespoon for a FP


  • Cook cauliflower: Place cauliflower in a large pot and cover with water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Boil until buttery-tender. Drain very well. Place back in the pot over medium-low heat. Stirring from time to time (don't burn it!), steam off all the excess water (about 3-4 minutes). Take off the heat.
  • Make the mash: Place the cauliflower in a large food processor with the blade attachment. Add all other ingredients and process until thick and smooth.
  • Serve warm topped with extra butter and chives, if you like.
