Keto Romano Cauliflower Mash

33 ratings

Making cauliflower mash at home is not difficult and it freezes really well, so make a large batch and freeze it in separate containers. This mash has a rich and tangy flavor thanks to the romano cheese. Feel free to use any cheese you like too. I think blue cheese, fontina and parm would all be delicious. Pair this with a perfectly roasted salmon fillet or garlic lemon shrimp!

      Excellent even with frozen riced cauliflower and the powdered Romano in a can. Amazing as written with fresh ingredients.

          I used parmesan instead of Romano and doubled the recipe! So so sooooo good!

                  I add butter and 3 wedges of Laughing Cow cheese instead of the other cheese and no sour cream

                        Absolutely delicious!!! I made mine slightly differently. Blitzed the cauliflower in the food processor & microwaved for 8 minutes, then added everything, stirred & served. I used basil instead of chives as that’s what I had. Delicious!!!!

                          Delicious! Followed the recipe exactly. Just as good as mashed potatoes, maybe better.

                            I'm finally sold on cauliflower! This recipe did it for was totally delish! Even my teenager loved it and encouraged me to add minced garlic. This goes into rotation!

                                This was so good and it was easy to make. Liked it better than regular mashed potatoes.

                                  Easy recipe! My family could not even tell the difference comparing to real potatoes.

                                    Would it be possible to use riced cauliflower in this?
