    I intend to try the smashed cauliflower. Right now all my stuff, except for the bare necessities, is in storage, including my food processor, but I do have a Ninja! It looks just like yours, 2 blades. If that's what you used then I can make the recipe too. Problem with having stuff in storage is that you go buy new instead of plowing through the stored stuff to find something you already have.

      Just made this for dinner for me and the 2 y/o a couple of days ago. We used coconut milk (never thought of sour cream) and a smidge of ghee. Also threw in some garlic powder and onion powder.

      I wonder if you could curry this up a bit and use it for Indian dishes?

        We have been doing this since we tried mashed parsnips and HATED them. Mashed cauliflower is the way to go! I use heavy cream, butter, S&P, and a little shredded fresh cheddar. It goes well with so many things. I did not, however, ever try using frozen cauliflower. Thanks for posting this!

          I have the same problem with just about everything. I've been known to even buy new socks just cuz I didn't want to do laundry, lol.

          Probably. Go ahead and try it!

          Always keep your mind open to frozen veggies. Sure, fresh is better (especially if it's in season), but frozen lasts longer (and is often cheaper, too!).

                There's a group of locally-owned, non-chain restaurants from my home-town (D.C. area) that served mashed cauliflower and it is a BEAUTIFUL thing! I find the food processor, butter, cream, onion powder, and s&p makes an almost identical end product. In the future, I'll have to vary it up and try some of the suggestions on here like sour cream and cheddar cheese!

                  I steam my cauliflower in a basket with 4 good sized garlic cloves and throw it all in a food processor with butter, HWC, salt and pepper.
                  Mmmmnommynom!!

                    I made the smashed cauliflower for Thanksgiving dinner today, using butter, sour cream, garlic powder plus cream cheese. Most delicious.

                    Thanks for the reminder Dr. BB, for using cheese in the mash! I hadn't done that in the cauli. A primal friend of mine often uses boursin, which is mighty tasty.

                          I use the smallest one for guacamole, mayo, and nut butter, the medium one for smashed cauliflower, and the big one for whole veggies

                            Mine looks like that but it doesn't have the middle sized container. Thanks.

                              Been trying to catch up on the Recipe posts and came across "smashed cauliflower" clear back in Oct. 2011, I think. I went to the recipe and noticed you used your Ninja for making this and called it a food processor. My daughter and I have been arguing about whether or not the Ninja is a food processor or a blender. She says food processor. You and I posted about this awhile back regarding homemade mayo. If the Ninja can do smashed cauliflower could it work for cauliflower rice? With my food processor in storage but a Ninja here at the house I would be able to make cauliflower, smashed and riced. Have you ever tried making cauliflower rice with it?
