Recipe: Cauliflower Bean Mash

Cauliflower Bean Mash

Yield: 6 Servings

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into small florets (about 5-6 cups)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 can white beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot. Add the cauliflower and garlic. Sauté until the garlic is fragrant (careful not to burn the garlic). Add the milk and 2 cups broth. Simmer for 10 - 15 minutes or until soft. Using an immersion hand blender purée the cauliflower in the pot until smooth. Add the while beans and mash roughly with the back of a wooden spoon. Stir in the cornmeal and your mixture will begin to thicken. Adjust the consistency by adding in the last cup of broth as needed. Stir in the salt to taste.
