Calories: 1075kcal
Author: Nora Taylor


  • 3 lbs yukon gold potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 lb frozen (or fresh) cauliflower florets
  • 2 tbs vegan butter *optional
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed *optional for picky kids
  • 1 tsp salt, or to taste
  • more water, as needed


  • In a large pot, add the chopped potatoes and enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil and cook for about 10 minutes. 
  • Next add the cauliflower and cook for 8 minutes more. 
  • Drain the potatoes and cauliflower in a colander, then add them back to the pot. Add all other ingredients while hot and mash well with a potato masher. Add water as needed to thin out to desired consistency. Alternately, you could mix with a hand mixer to get them even smoother.
