Notes: i love to take raw cauliflower and process into rice. For hubby and 1, a half head of cauliflower (4 cups riced) is 2 servings, perfect for a couple. We usually store extra cauliflower rice in a Pyrex dish for use within a few days. Mostly we have been making cauliflower rice stir fry with ground meat or with curry. These photos are from my first time attempting mashed cauliflower using cauliflo rice. Usually the recipes call for florets but i usually have riced cauliflower, I had about half a head of cauliflower rice left over from the other night. Well this was a splendid success and a lot easier than other recipes call for. In the past I used a hand held masher instead if the immersion blender and it was not a consistent texture and I didn’t love it. It was still very cauliflower flavored and had to be masked with cheese and bacon.
This recipe however is virtually labor free. If your cauliflower is already riced this should be easy.
Hubby loved this and stated that he will be making this mashed cauliflower a lot more! I love how it wasn’t as heavy in cauliflower taste and the best part was no manual labor with the easy processing power if my immersion blender.
