What you will need
To make the best cauliflower mash you and your family would love, you will need the following ingredients
Fresh cauliflower: Search for a vibrant, unblemished head of cauliflower for the best quality and flavor.
Boursin cheese: this is a blend of soft cream cheese, garlic, and herbs.
Salt and black pepper to taste
Chives for garnishing: this is optional
How to make creamy Boursin mashed cauliflower
Cut the cauliflower heads into florets (you can remove the core if you want but it is optional). Rinse under cold water and set aside.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil on medium-high heat, reduce the heat and carefully add the cauliflower florets. Boil for about 10 minutes or until it is fork tender. Alternativetively, steam the cauliflower until fork-tender.
Use a spider strainer or a slotted spoon to transfer the cooked cauliflower into a food processor and leave to cool for 3-5 minutes.
Add Boursin cheese, butter, salt, and pepper to taste. Process until you get a smooth and creamy consistency. You can add more Boursin if needed or adjust the seasoning to taste.
Scoop the mashed cauliflower into a serving bowl, garnish with chives, and enjoy!
- Don't overcook the cauliflower or you could risk turning it into a mushy puree.
- Substitute Boursin cheese for cream cheese and other herbs of choice.
How to store
I like to serve it on the day that is made, however, cauliflower will remain fresh in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days. You can also freeze it, but be aware it might lose some of its texture during thawing.
How to serve
Cauliflower mash can be served the same way you would serve mashed potatoes. It goes well with any protein of your choice, such as baked pork chops, steak, roast chicken, and baked cod with tomatoes. You could also use it to top a shepherd’s pie or any pie that requires mashed potato topping.
