CARAMELIZED ONION & GOAT CHEESE CAULIFLOWER MASH

Cauliflower mash can be a bit boring and tasteless unless you do something different with it. We’ve tried it with just butter and cream, and it left a bit to be desired. It usually takes bold flavors to excite my taste buds, so I’m hoping Dianna’s version will spice things up a bit. Eating low carb at home is important since I don’t always have that opportunity when I’m out doing restaurant reviews. Now let’s dive in and learn more about this dish!

“Last week I was craving something warm and comforting {even though it’s a billion degrees here}, but still wanted to make sure there was some healthy goodness involved.

I had a huge head of cauliflower without any particular purpose just hanging out in the fridge, so I boiled it up, gave it a whir in the blender and tucked into a big bowl of the result. Satisfied, but wanting to experiment with jazzing up the flavor, I bought another head of cauliflower that weekend and tried a new version, blending in some caramelized onions and goat cheese as well.

This would make such a great side dish for a special dinner or a regular weeknight. To be honest, I ate an enormous bowl of this and this alone and was perfectly happy!

It’s thicker than soup but a little thinner than mashed potatoes with a bit of tang from the goat cheese and a slight sweetness from the caramelized onions. In fact, if someone didn’t know any better they might actually think it is mashed potatoes. Silky smooth, creamy and filling. And it’s pretty healthy, too!”

Hi! I’m Dianna. I live with my husband {Steve}, my baby boy {Cole} and my yellow lab {Farley} in sunny South Florida where it’s ice cream-eating weather almost all year long. In 2011, I started The Kitchen Prep {the title inspired by the preppy Palm Beach fashions of my style icon, Lilly Pulitzer} as a hobby while I figured out what to do with myself after leaving a career as an elementary school teacher. I always loved writing and food, so the combination just seemed like a natural fit. In 2014 I officially traded in standardized testing for recipe testing, and I’ve never looked back!
