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 up my 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-old sitting naked (why?) on top of the table, half of the food 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 🙄
They are also just delicious served up during the week for something just a little bit different!

Creamy Whipped Feta and Mashed Cauliflower Mash Recipe
- 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into florets
- 2 tablespoon salted butter
- ¼ cup Greek yogurt
- ½ cup Danish feta, crumbled
- 2 green onions, sliced
- 2 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
- 2 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
- milk to taste
- salt and pepper to taste
- Place the cauliflower in a steamer over boiling water and steam until tender, about 10 minutes
- Pop the steamed cauliflower into a large bowl with the butter, greek yogurt and feta and blitz with a handheld blender until creamy. Alternatively pop into the food processor and process until smooth, or use a handheld masher (although the results won't be as smooth)
- Add in the green onions, chives and parsley and mix well to combine
- Salt and pepper to taste. If a creamier result is needed, then add in some milk until you reach the desired consistency. Serve and enjoy
Just tried it. Awesome..

I really have to try this recipe out! I have always wanted to make this! Looks delicious!
Thanks April 🙂 It is a favorite around here!
What an awesome recipe! This is a fun and delicious alternative to mashed potatoes!
Lol - my girls love "helping" when I'm testing recipes and doing photos too! They just usually have clothes on. 🙂
Oh my kids are naked obsessed, it gets embarrassing!!
Michelle Ferrand says
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!
Marie-Pierre Breton says
Feta and cauliflower what a nice pairing! I'll definitely will try it out! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for popping by 🙂
OMG I love cauliflower. Never thought of whipping it and adding Feta. Sounds yummy!
Oh I am in love with cauliflower too 🙂
This sounds like such a delicious combo! I adore cauliflower mash, and the feta sounds perfect in there!
Cheese in any form makes everything better right 🙂
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.
They think it's great don't they!! Mine are seriously waiting on the sidelines of every shoot 🙂
Kimberly @ Berly's Kitchen says
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 🙂

I am a potato lover. This sounds so good. We often have cauliflower rice...so this is right up my alley.
Oh I am a huge potato lover as well! These definitely satisfy my craving when I want something a little lighter
