Total Time

Craving mashed potatoes? Body says NO CARBS FOR YOU!? Make these delicious, fluffy and creamy Mashed Fauxtatoes instead. THM friendly with a dairy free option, too.


    Single Serving

    • 2 c frozen or fresh cauliflower florets, dry cooked
    • 1 Tbs butter
    • 1-2 Tbs cashew milk, or preferred milk alternative
    • 1/8 tsp THM Mineral Salt
    • 1/2 tsp THM Simply Sunflower Lecithin, optional
    • If not using Lecithin, try using a tablespoon or two of heavy whipping cream if desired

    Multiple Servings

    • 1 package frozen cauliflower, 16 oz OR equivalent of fresh cauliflower florets, dry cooked
    • 3 Tbs butter
    • 2-4 Tbs cashew milk or preferred milk alternative, more or less as needed for consistency
    • 1/2 tsp THM Mineral Salt or to taste
    • 1 1/2 tsp THM Simply Sunflower Lecithin, optional
    • If not using Lecithin, try using a few tablespoons of heavy whipping cream if desired

    Dairy Free Option

    • Make as above EXCEPT eliminate butter or heavy cream and be sure to use lecithin. Butter flavor can be added if desired. I tried 1/4 tsp for the Multiple Servings version.


    1. Cook cauliflower as dryly as possible: bake for approximately 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven OR steam and spread out on a cookie sheet to let the steam evaporate for several minutes OR microwave using your microwave's frozen vegetable setting or according to manufacturer's instructions
    2. Break down the cooked cauliflower with a stick blender or food processor with the butter, cashew milk, and salt. **Don't over process in the food processor unless you want baby food consistency!** You want a smooth consistency without being totally pureed like baby food
    3. Put mashed cauliflower into a bowl and add lecithin
    4. Use the whisk attachment on your stick blender and whisk the lecithin in until completely incorporated and fauxtatoes are nice and fluffy. Or whisk by hand or try a hand mixer if your stick blender doesn't have a whisk attachment.


    Recipe Notes

    Trim Healthy Mamas, here's how these delicious fauxtatoes fit into your healthy eating plan.

    Lecithin does have fat, so we do need to be mindful when using it in E or FP settings. One teaspoon of lecithin has 1.5 grams of fat.

    For E or FP settings, make the Dairy Free Option. This will mean the Single Serving recipe has about 1 gram of fat. The Multiple Servings recipe will have about 2.5 grams of fat.
    For S settings, we don't count the fat grams, isn't that wonderful?
