You'll love this healthier and lower carb alternative to mashed potato. It's a creamy and cheesy cauliflower mash, with no potatoes in sight, from the Tony Ferguson Cook Book


  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 75g light cream cheese (an alternative option is using low-fat ricotta cheese)
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chives, chopped

If the mixture is too thick, try adding a small amount of low-salt stock while blending.


  1. Steam cauliflower until tender.
  2. Place in a blender or food processor with the cream cheese, garlic and salt and pepper.
  3. Process until smooth.
  4. Garnish with chopped chives and cracked pepper.

Hi Laura, yes you can use lower-fat cottage cheese but ricotta cheese is best if you're looking for a cream cheese alternative. Hope that helps. Thanks :)


Can i use cottage cheese instead of a cream cheese?
