  • Stove Top


  • 12 red baby potatoes quartered
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 10 oz cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley and thyme


  • In a large pot add quartered red baby potatoes and fill with water, three quarters of the pot full. Add 1 teaspoon salt to the water. Bring to a boil and cook for 15 minutes. Then add cauliflower to the same pot and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until potatoes and cauliflower are fork tender.
  • Drain and place back in the pot. Add olive oil, chopped parsley, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Using a potato masher, mash until smooth. Taste to see if you prefer more salt and pepper. Add more if desired. Serve and enjoy!


  • Cooking Times May Vary - All stove tops cook differently. Cook this recipe like you would normally cook potatoes. If your stove top cooks faster than what was written above then adjust your cooking times.
  • Potatoes - You can choose to peel the potatoes if you prefer potatoes without skins.
  • Add more Cauliflower - For even lighter smoother potatoes you can add an additional 10 ounces of cauliflower to this recipe.
  • Herbs - You can add additional fresh herbs to this recipe like chives, thyme, or even dill.
  • Warm the Olive Oil - If you want an even flavorful mashed cauliflower add the olive oil to the hot pot for a few minutes before you add in the potatoes/cauliflower. This will warm the olive oil giving you a fuller richer olive oil taste.
