  • 36 ounces Cauliflower chopped
  • 6 ounces Cabbage cut into thin 1-inch long slices
  • 4 tablespoons Butter divided
  • Salt to taste


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add cauliflower and let boil for approximately 10 minutes. You will know that the cauliflower is done when it is soft enough to easily break apart with a fork.
  • While the cauliflower cooks melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet. Add the cabbage and saute for 5-7 minutes until softened.
  • Once the cauliflower has finished cooking pour into a strainer and thoroughly drain the water. Let it sit for several minutes to remove as much water as possible!
  • Pour the cauliflower back into the empty pot and add the cabbage and the remaining butter. Mash together until it is a mashed potato consistency.
  • Add salt to taste and serve.
