Author: Kristi


  • 1 head cauliflower washed, stem and leaves removed, and chopped into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain dijon mustard*
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon chicken bouillion powder **optional - see note
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • *butter optional*
  • *chives optional*


  • Place a large stock pot of water on the stove over high heat.
  • Add cut cauliflower to water and heat to boiling. Turn down to medium-high and cook until cauliflower is tender (6-8 minutes, depending how big your cauliflower pieces are). Remove from heat and drain well.
  • Add all ingredients (except the garnishes!) and using an immersion blender or food processor, puree until nearly smooth.
  • Serve with butter and top with chives, if desired.


*Use a high quality whole grain dijon mustard for the best flavor. I used Maille Whole Grain Dijon Mustard.
**Omit chicken bouillion powder to make a vegetarian version of this dish.
