I know someone will tell you that cauliflower puree tastes just like mashed potatoes, but don’t believe the hype. 

While you can make an amazing mashed cauliflower or cauliflower puree, it’s delicious – but it doesn’t compare to mashed potatoes in the least bit. 

Pureed cauliflower stands on its own, and with a few simple additions, you can make a light and airy cauliflower puree that pairs well with steak or chicken. 

This is a low carb and keto friendly dish. It’s one of my favorites to make, and we thoroughly enjoy having it as a nice little addition to our plates.

Cut your cauliflower into even pieces. Be sure to remove the stems and any greenery.
