4-6 Servings


  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into smallish pieces
  • 1 tbl butter, softened
  • 1 tbl plain Greek yogurt (I used Cabot)
  • 1 tbl chicken broth
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese (I used Cabot Horseradish Cheddar)
  • 3 cloves roasted garlic (optional)


  1. Cut the cauliflower into smallish pieces.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, combine butter, yogurt, and broth (you can also use milk or half & half) and add cut up cauliflower.
  3. Microwave on high for about 4-5 minutes.
  4. Stir the cauliflower, so it is coated with the liquid.
  5. Return to microwave and cook on high for 4-5 more minutes until cauliflower is easily pierced with a fork.
  6. Place grated cheese and garlic in the bowl of a food processor, then add cooked cauliflower.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste and pulse until the mixture is the consistency of mashed potatoes. Serve hot.
  8. Refrigerate leftovers (haha, like there will be any). Reheat in microwave.
