I’ve been sticking with Weight Watchers since January. Things are going well-ish. At times I think the weight loss is too slow and at other times I’m just proud I’ve stuck with it as long as I have.

The biggest challenge has been finding new recipes to keep from getting bored by eating the same thing over and over. Enter this chive & garlic mashed cauliflower recipe that comes in at only ONE Weight Watcher Freestyle point per serving. 

This flavorful cauliflower mash pairs well with a wide range of beef, pork, chicken, and plant-based entrees. As a bonus, it comes together in under 30 minutes.

This is such a perfect side dish for those busy weeknights when you want to stick to the WW plan but everything is rush, rush, rush.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Serves: 4

Tip: Steaming the garlic along with the cauliflower will remove the raw edge and make it more tender.

Garlic mashed cauliflower


1 medium cauliflower head, florets only

2-3 whole garlic cloves, peeled

1 T. butter, melted

2 T. unsweetened almond milk

1 t. garlic powder

1 t. onion powder

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

3 T. fresh chives, chopped


Place the cauliflower florets and the garlic cloves into a steamer basket set over a pot of gently boiling water.

Cover and steam until the cauliflower is fork-tender, around 15 minutes.

Transfer the cauliflower and garlic to a food processor or blender and add the melted butter, almond milk, garlic powder, and onion powder.

Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and process until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust the seasonings, as desired.

Transfer to a serving bowl and top with fresh chives before serving.
