Butter & Dill Mashed Cauliflower in a white ramekins

After I made my Cheesy Mashed Cauliflower I knew that dill was next on my list. Dill is such a spring/summer flavor, especially in our family. It brings to mind baby potatoes and cream, which in turn led to me thinking hmmm, can I make a delicious mashed cauliflower instead of using potatoes?

Yes. Yes, I can, and yes I did, and yes it’s delicious!

There’s just something so darn right about tricking my family into eating their vegetables, I’m not gonna lie. It’s also so easy that I feel like I’m cheating, something this tasty shouldn’t be that easy, or good for you.

Now really, this is recipe #2 with mashed cauliflower. Did I convert anyone last week? Did anyone try it or has it always been on your menu?

  2. Nerys Jones says

    My favourite vegetable, I’d never spoil it by mashing it up though.

    • The Kitchen Magpie says

      Very good if you need low carb through!

  3. Rosaline Linhart says

    this sounds delicious, but , the Irish in me still wants its potatoes.

  4. Ethel MacDonald says

    thank you thank you! I love cauliflower so much, such an underestimated vegetable! 🙂

  5. The Kitchen Magpie says

    That sounds really good too with the garlic and herb cream cheese!

  6. Rhonda Blundell says

    I am going to try this recipe. I made mashed cauliflower yesterday for Easter dinner as I made a ham and my sister-in-law brought scalped potatoes. I mashed the cauliflower with herb and garlic cream cheese but was really impressed.

  7. The Kitchen Magpie says

    Mine are converted as well. however my daughter still loves everything as raw and crunchy as can be. She’ll eat this, but cooked carrots? Never!

  8. Helen Richards says

    I get that! Same boat – tricking my palate too 🙂

  9. The Kitchen Magpie says

    I”m Ukrainian, what can I say? Dill belongs in everything! Really though, it’s about tricking my palate into thinking it’s as good as potatoes. Not quite, but I was really happy with it as a carb substitution!

  10. Helen Richards says

    Just tried mashed cauliflower the other day, can’t wait to try your recipe with dill!

  11. Jennifer Smith Kachuk says

    We are 🙂 my kids prefer it to mashed potatoes .
