Single Serve Cheesy Mashed Cauliflower

Yesterday I posted the above picture on Facebook of my beautiful little lunch: about 2.5 oz. grilled salmon, along with a spear of brocolli (both leftover from a trip to TGI Friday’s) along with a side of cheesy mashed cauliflower I made that morning.

Since I only wanted it that day, I made a single serving. I know some of you either live alone or have family who won’t touch veggies with a ten-foot pole, so I though this recipe might be useful to you as well.

Nik’s Single Serve Cheesy Mashed Cauliflower
Makes about 1/2 c. (ish) of mashed cauliflower. Divide that into as many portions as you see fit!


  • 4-6 frozen cauliflower florets 
  • 1/4 c. (ish) of water
  • 1 wedge of Laughing Cow Light spreadable cheese (any flavor you like – I use Garlic & Herb)
  • 1 tbsp. shredded cheese of your choice
  • 1 heaping tsp. grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Place florets and water in a bowl. Microwave on high for about 2 minutes. This should leave your florets pretty soft. If not, keep microwaving in 15 second increments until they are!
Drain the water and mash the florets (this can be done with a sturdy fork although for me any excuse to use my potato masher is a good one!).
While the florets are still hot, mix in your cheeses (Laughing Cow, shredded and parmesan), along with your salt and pepper. Mix in well.
I personally like to add parsely to the top (I’m a visual eater) but that’s not necessary. If it’s not hot enough for you, pop it back in the microwave about 30 seconds to reheat it through.
