Cauliflower Puree

I have had a ton of requests for my recipe for cauliflower puree on Twitter and Instagram, so here you go!  I think you will be surprised at how easy this is to make and how delicious it is.

The recipe contains 6 ingredients: cauliflower, almond milk, chicken broth, butter, salt  and pepper.  That’s it!  



I use almond milk because that’s what I have in the house and I like the flavor.  You can certainly use any other liquid you have on hand (milk, soy milk, etc…) or stick with just chicken broth for a lighter puree.  You can also omit the butter, but I think that it adds an extra creaminess to the puree that makes it more like mashed potatoes.



This is my go-to side dish lately and it’s the perfect pairing for any protein!  My favorites are a nice grilled steak or some seared scallops!



Hope you enjoy!  Let me know how it turns out 🙂

  1. Sounds really good…My wife and I will definitely give it a try!

    It’s funny…I think I saw Chef Robert (Restaurant Impossible) do a cauliflower puree not too long ago, and I told my wife that it sounded like a good idea.

    As such, it was serendipitous to see your timely post! 🙂

  4. Just wanted to let you know that even though it took a little while, we finally got around to the cauliflower puree tonight…and it was a hit with my wife, my ten-year-old daughter, and me!

    I used a bit too much coconut milk…should have started with a half cup first, but I went ahead and poured in the whole 3/4 without thinking. At the end of it all, though, we really enjoyed it! Great taste!

    • YAY!! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!!
      I find with anything I cook, it’s trial and error. I always tweak things every time I make them…
