This Keto Herbed Goat Cheese Cauliflower Mash is rich, creamy and incredibly flavorful. Oven roasted cauliflower, mashed with fresh herbs, heavy cream, goat cheese and sour cream. It's basically the perfect keto side dish.
The best keto cauliflower mash
It is really hard to make a pile of mash look pretty, but trust me when I tell you that this is seriously delicious. It doesn't need a low carb gravy or any other kind of sauce. It is amazing straight out of the bowl. It pairs well with just about anything, but two of my favorite dishes to pair it with are my Keto Dijon Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops or my Pan Seared Chicken with Balsamic Cream Sauce, Mushrooms and Onions
How to make cauliflower mash
This keto cauliflower mash makes a great low carb substitution for mashed potatoes. Often times, cauliflower mash can be on the watery side because the cauliflower is typically steamed in water or broth and it can be absorbent like a sponge, holding in the liquid.
I dry roast my cauliflower with only salt and pepper to prevent this. It makes the cauliflower mash a lot closer to actual potatoes and it really enhances the flavor. Also, roasting the cauliflower on a silicone baking mat makes the clean up a cinch.
Depending on the size of the head of cauliflower you use, you may want to add more heavy cream or butter than the recipes calls for. If the cauliflower mash feels too thick, just slowly add additional heavy cream as you puree it until it reaches the desired consistency. Additionally, you can also add chicken stock.
