  • 1
    In 1-quart saucepan, heat butter, salt, garlic and chicken broth to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer 12 to 15 minutes or until garlic is completely soft. Set aside.
  • 2
    In stockpot or Dutch oven, heat 3 quarts water to boiling over high heat.
  • 3
    Cut florets from heads of cauliflower. If using stalks, cut stalks into 1/2-inch chunks. There should be about 8 cups raw cauliflower. Add cauliflower to boiling water; return to boiling. Cook 15 to 20 minutes or until cauliflower is extremely soft when pierced with knife. Remove from heat; set aside.
  • 4
    Strain cauliflower well; pat dry thoroughly with towel. Place cauliflower in food processor. Add broth mixture. Cover; process until extremely smooth, processing in batches if necessary. Rinse out stockpot, and return to pot to combine batches.

Expert Tips

  • Don't skip the step of drying off cooked cauliflower thoroughly before pureeing. It prevents the finished mash from getting too runny.
  • Top the finished mash with chopped fresh herbs for a little pop of green.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
