  • 2 Cauliflowers (cut up into florets)
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 3 tbsp sour cream
  • 10 chives chopped
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes


  • Add the cauliflower florets, 1 tsp salt, and chicken broth into a pot. Turn the heat to high.
  • When the chicken stock boils, start the timer for 15-20 minutes until the cauliflower is soft. 
  • Next, drain the chicken stock and leave cauliflower in the pot. 
  • With a potato masher, mash the cauliflower until the consistency you like.
