Keto Friendly Garlic and Chive Cauliflower Mash
Recipe type: Sinner side
Cuisine: American
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 1 medium cauliflower head, florets only
  • 2-3 whole garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 T. unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • 1 t. onion powder
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 3 T. fresh chives, chopped
  1. Place the cauliflower florets and the garlic cloves into a steamer basket set over a pot of gently boiling water. Cover and steam until the cauliflower is fork-tender, around 15 minutes.
  2. Transfer the cauliflower and garlic to a food processor or blender and add the olive oil, almond milk, garlic powder, and onion powder. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and process until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust the seasonings, as desired.
  3. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with fresh chives before serving. Enjoy!


 Tip: Steaming the garlic along with the cauliflower will remove the raw edge and make it more tender.
When serving guests, I often add a couple of tablespoons of salt free , farm fresh organic butter to the mixture before blending it all together this adds a rich creamy taste.

Cauliflower gives you vitamins C and K as well as potassium, manganese and other nutrients all with a low calorie count so it is one of our favorites at our dinner table.

  • Thank you, I will try to keep posting healthy keto recipes each week. I am in a 31 day challenge for July so it is daily however in
    August I will need to reduce it to 2 recipes a week due to a comment to produce a couple of keto recipe books and some podcast
    interviews my mentor wants me to do as a guest.

  • It is such a small amount of garlic and it does add to the flavor of the dish. I like it but I also like garlic and use a lot of it when roasting a leg of lamb. I also have a Chicken recipe that calls for 40 cloves of garlic that we like a lot. I think you will enjoy this but use only 2 cloves the first time you make it and see how that goes.
