This is the best mashed potato sub I have tried. No one will complain when my Keto Mashed Cauliflower with Cream Cheese and Asiago take that starchy side’s place. The best part is this reheats well. Feel free to bake it the day before and then just microwave to reheat.
Keto Mashed Cauliflower with Cream Cheese and Asiago – Low Carb, Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, THM S
I was very excited when Better Homes & Gardens asked me to share a recipe with you. I’ve only been blogging for a little more than a year and this is my first guest post ever. I still can’t believe it’s on Delish Dish! How cool is that?
I was able to choose any recipe on the BHG site to adapt. With Thanksgiving a week away I decided to take a classic side dish and make it low carb and Trim Healthy Mama friendly. I chose Cream Cheese Mashers with Kale Pesto knowing cauliflower would work to replace the potatoes.
We are traveling for Thanksgiving but I’m hoping my sister-in-law lets me help with Thanksgiving dinner. Besides the turkey, I’m hoping for a few solid low carb, THM S options.
My Keto Mashed Cauliflower with Cream Cheese and Asiago is a definite. Also in the options are a healthy green bean casserole, roasted broccoli, butternut squash, and my Braided Garlic Breadsticks. I might whip up some Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes to finish off the meal.
I love cooking so much that I end up there no matter where we are for holidays. I just elbow my relatives out of the way and plant myself before the stove. Half kidding. But at the very least I come armed with appetizers, sides, and pies from my own kitchen.

- 40 oz of frozen cauliflower microwaved or steamed until warm
- 1 head of roasted garlic ***
- 2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter
- 12 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1 cup shredded asiago cheese
- Put half of each of the first six ingredients in a food processor (the entire amount will not fit in a standard food processor). Process until smooth. Spoon into the baking dish. Top with half the asiago cheese. Repeat.
- Bake at 400 for 30 minutes or until golden, bubbly, and hot.
*** to roast the garlic slice the head down the middle exposing the cloves, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, wrap in foil and bake for 30 minutes at 400. The cloves with soften enough to squeeze out of the bulb. The best part is this reheats well. Feel free to bake it the day before and then just microwave to reheat.
