This light and fluffy mash is a perfect keto-friendly substitute for starchier dishes. Cauliflower "Mashed Potatoes" have a mild flavor and silky texture that pairs amazingly well with any holiday spread. Plus, this recipe is as simple as "mix and mash," so it's also great to "whip out" for a mid-week family meal.
Snip venting holes in each end of the bags of cauliflower. Place into the microwave and heat 5 minutes. Flip the bags over, and heat an additional 5-8 minutes, or until the cauliflower florets are very soft and can be easily mashed with the tines of a fork.
Spread the florets onto a baking sheet and air dry 5-10 minutes, or until tacky to the touch.
Combine half the cauliflower with half the heavy cream in a food processor. Blend until smooth. Scrape the cauliflower mash into a bowl and repeat with the remaining florets and heavy cream.
Add the sour cream, melted butter, salt, and pepper to the mashed cauliflower. Blend with a rubber spatula until well combined. Taste for seasoning and adjust with more salt, pepper, or sour cream as needed. Serve warm, garnished with fresh chives and melted butter if desired.
