I adore mashed potatoes. I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t. I’ve made regular mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, mashed Idaho and sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes with celery root, mashed potatoes with pumpkin, plain mashed cauliflower, and now this. This is by far my new favorite!

Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Mashers -

My husband feels the same way about mashed potatoes as I do. He loves them. The night I first made these cauliflower and sweet potato mashers, he couldn’t say enough good things about them. When I asked him if he could and would eat these over regular mashed potatoes his resounding “YES” surprised me!

Last night we had steak and lobster tails (see what happens when he goes to the store for beer?) for dinner along with these mashers. They were the perfect accompaniment and balanced out the richness of the steak and lobster nicely. These Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Mashers make you feel like your indulging in something sinful, but you’re not. Unless of course you eat them with steak and lobster! What can I say?

  1. Seriously making this tomorrow. Just for me. No one else gets any and won't appreciate it like I will. Thank you. Salmon sounds good with it.

    • I just made this. It's a big pot–all for me. I promise I won't eat it all at once. 😉 It will be great to freeze it in portions for me to have later on as well. I started using a potato masher and for some reason it was hurting my arm (it's me). So I used a handheld blender in just little pulses. Perfect! I love that it still has some texture.

  2. I seriously want that whole pot like NOW! WOw, these look good!

  3. What an easy dish to make and looks amazing! I love cauliflower (one of the only veggies I do like) and sweet potatoes are a favorite of mine. Can't wait to try!

  4. This is the perfect side – it sounds delicious and the fact that it's better for you – even better!

  5. Wow I love that you put these two together! This looks incredible!

  6. This looks heavenly! I love the idea of combining the two – swapping out some of the carbs for healthier veggies!

  7. I can't tell you how much I love this. I've been cooking with cauliflower nonstop and can only imagine how good they must taste with sweet potatoes.

  8. mmm mashed sweet potatoes are soo, so good and YES to the cauliflower being added in!

  9. Whoa, you are one lucky lady – steak, lobster tails, AND these mashers? Sounds like heaven to me.

  10. mashed potatoes are my #1 comfort food. I add cauliflower to white potatoes all the time, but never thought about adding it to sweets! great idea!

  11. I can't even tell you how much I love this combination! Pair them with steak and lobster tail? Oh my!

  12. Steak and lobster with these amazing potatoes? I want to have dinner at your house!

  13. I'll have you know, Lady, that the other day I made some chili. It turned out a bit spicy. There was about 2 servings left and I wanted some but was "afraid" of the heat. Also a couple days ago I found some of this cauliflower and sweet potato mashers that I had in the freezer and stuck it in the fridge to eat sometime soon. Opened the fridge to decide on lunch today and saw the mash. A couple scoops of it in my chili made it perfectly not-too-spicy. Loved it. Now I need to make more chili and more of this mash ASAP. 😉
