Spicy Pickled Jalapeno Mashed Cauliflower

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


  • 2 heads cauliflower
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped pickled jalapenos (more or less to taste)
  • Kosher salt


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, seasoned generously with Kosher salt. Chop cauliflower into florets. Cook in boiling water for about 6-7 minutes, or until very well done (you want it to be completely soft and easily pierced with a knife so it will puree smoothly). Drain well.
  2. In a bowl with an immersion blender, or in a food processor, puree the hot cauliflower with butter and garlic powder until very smooth. Stir in pickled jalapenos. Serve immediately.
