Our mashed cauliflower is a tasty, figure-friendly alternative to mashed potatoes. And because the cauliflower is roasted instead of boiled, it keeps its nutrients. So you can feel good about helping yourself to seconds.


  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan, shredded


  1. Preheat oven to 425 °F.
  2. Place the cauliflower, garlic and shallots on a sheet of tinfoil and season with salt and pepper. Wrap the ingredients in the tinfoil to create a tightly sealed pocket. 
  3. Place pockets on rack in preheated oven for 25 to 35 minutes or until cauliflower is tender. 
  4. Place cooked ingredients and Greek yogurt into food processor and blend until desired consistency. Be careful not to blend too long.
  5. Garnish with shredded Parmesan cheese.
