Recipe: Skinny Mashed Cauliflower

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

  • 1 head of cauliflower, trimmed
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken (or vegetable) broth
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup light sour cream
  • 2-ounce ⅓ less fat cream cheese
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Cut cauliflower heads to florets. Boil on medium-high heat with chicken broth and water until VERY soft (about 10-15 minutes), stir occasionally.
