Cauliflower/Broccoli Mashed Potatoes

This last Saturday we received two heads of cauliflower in our Bountiful Basket. Lately, we've been receiving one and in all honesty, they've gone bad because I can't come up with creative and delicious ways to make it. I did make panko breaded cauliflower but it seemed to be a one-time serve dish that didn't hold up well for leftovers- and one head seemed too much for the two of us! So this time I was determined to use it. I remembered seeing cauliflower mashed potatoes once, and just recently I came across this super rad kids blog Super Healthy Kids, and found a similar recipe! I decided to give it a try and other than saying that they needed more salt, Geoff didn't realize it was mainly cauliflower, haha! Until he say the description under my uploaded picture! Oops!

I edited the recipe to include double the amount of cauliflower since that it how much I got from one head.


  • 4 cups cauliflower, washed and roughly chopped

  • 2 cups potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped into small pieces

  • 1 cup broccoli heads

  • 1/2- 3/4 cup fat free milk or soy milk, depending on how moist you want yours

  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Boil cauliflower & potatoes. Salt when boiling.

*Meanwhile cook your broccoli in a separate pot since they take a lot less time- make sure not to overcook or you'll lose all the nutrients! Give it a rough chop when you're done or if you prefer chunky broccoli, leave as is.

2. Drain water and place back into pot. Mix with your mixer.

3.  Add milk/soy milk & pepper.

4. Gently stir in your broccoli! & voila!

You can choose to not add broccoli if you tend to not enjoy the combination of the two!

This recipe yields about 6 servings! Great for leftovers! They taste great, just a different kind of mashed potatoes- although the smell of the cooked cauliflower will give it away! haha!

I have another head of cauliflower. Any awesome recipes out there?
