Cheesy Mashed Cauliflower - Keto and Low Carb

I start by cooking the cauliflower in the microwave, without any water, then pat them dry.  This really helps them stay creamy and not watery at all!  I add in cheddar, mascarpone, sour cream and butter and pulse in a food processor until smooth and creamy!

Ingredients

1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into small pieces

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided

1/2 cup mascarpone cheese

1/4 cup sour cream

2 tablespoons grass-fed butter

1 teaspoon garlic salt

Salt and Pepper to taste

Preparation

Add the cauliflower to a microwave-safe bowl, cover with a paper plate and cook in the microwave for 10 minutes or until tender.  Drain well and pat with paper towels pressing gently to dry.

Add to the bowl of a food processor along with the remaining ingredients.

Pulse until smooth and creamy, then serve!

Note: You can also boil the cauliflower instead of cooking it in the microwave if you prefer.  Just be sure to drain really well before adding to the food processor.
