This easy mashed cauliflower recipe is prepared with 5 ingredients: cauliflower, garlic cloves, buttermilk and butter. Will it taste like mashed potatoes? Quite close! But, it’s cauliflower, keep that in mind 🙂 I use it often in keto recipes.
Note: many call it fauxtato (mix of faux (fake) and potato, but I don’t like it – it’s real cauliflower that is mashed, creamy and delish 🙂
