Creamy Whipped Feta and Cauliflower Mash Recipe

This cauliflower mash recipe has yielded the funniest photo shoot I have experienced to date by far.

The kids and I had a weekend away at my parents shack to get some beach time in before heading back to winter in the States (brrrr), and as they were completely buggered from a day of building sandcastles, I decided to try out a few new recipes.

This delicious Creamy Whipped Feta and Cauliflower Mash recipe being one of them.

Well, I set upmy tables for the photos, got the kids involved by having them hold a few props, and then had to rush off to answer a phone call.

When I returned I found my two-year-oldsitting naked (why?) on top of the table, half of thefood gone, and a huge spoonful of mashed cauliflower heading straight for his dirty wee face.

It was a mess, but all I could do was laugh, which he and his sister thought was hilarious, and a fit of giggles by all involved ensued.

At least he enjoyed it right?

(and even more important, at least I had already taken my photos, or tears would have replaced the laughter 😛 )

It was funny at the time.

Naked babies aside, this dish is just perfect for your Holiday table.

It replaces those trusty old mashed potatoes with something a little bit fancy, and all that added whipped feta and chives really make them just delightful!

Personally I would serve up mashed potatoes as well as I am all about the sides during the Holidays, but thats me🙄

    OMG YES! Normally cauliflower mash is super grainy looking, but yours looks so creamy and yummy!

      I am with you on that Michelle - the first time I ever had cauliflower mash it was grainy and I hated it! Whipping it makes ALL the difference!

    Haha! I have a 1 yr old daughter and she has inserted herself in a photo shoot or two in that manner. Last one was a pile of pastries and she took a bite out of each one while I was tending to my older son (and only gone a couple of minutes). This mash looks delicious! Such a great use of cauliflower.

    These look just like mashed potatoes, only healthier. Great recipe! Will have to give this a try the next time we are craving mashed potatoes.

      I actually served them up at Thanksgiving and everyone thought they were mashed potatoes. Even my SIL, who hates anything to do with cauliflower, ate two servings and asked for the recipe! She was shocked 🙂
