  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 3 green onions or chives, chopped
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons creamy horseradish (optional)
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Over medium-high heat, steam cauliflower in a covered pot in 1-2 inches of water. Steam until fork tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Drain the water and leave the cauliflower in the hot pot, not on the burner. Leaving it in the hot pot helps pull some of the excess moisture from the cauliflower.
  3. Fork mash the cauliflower, add the rest of the ingredients, and mash until they are the consistency of mashed potatoes.

Serves 6-8
