The best, easiest, and creamy cauliflower mash. If you are not a lover of cauliflower I feel like I can change your mind. This is the easiest three ingredient recipe will ever come across and absolutely delicious. If you find like your cauliflower is watery that’s because you’re probably not letting your cauliflower sit for 10 to 15 minutes before you mash it. If you don’t do this step you definitely can have a watery mash.

  • 1 small head raw cauliflower, 5-6 cups
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • shallot and chive Boursin, or any


  • Wash and break up your cauliflower into florets.
  • Boil some water on the stove and salt it. Once it comes to a boil you can add in your cauliflower and let it go until its fork tender. Mine usually takes around 10 minutes.
  • Drain out the water and let it sit there so the steam and water can evaporate for at least 10 to 15 minutes.
  • After it has sat in the pot drained, you can add it to your blender with a little bit of extra salt, pepper is optional, and any herbed cream cheese you love.


Feel free to use garlic and butter or any plant-based cream cheese that you love. Everyone tells me that Kite-Hill is delicious. You are more than welcome to also use sour cream as well or ghee too. Feel free to make it your own.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
