Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place all mashed potato ingredients into a food processor.
  • 2. Process until creamy and smooth, similar in texture to the attached pictures. (Although you may be tempted to do so, do not add any additional liquid other than the 2 tablespoons of water. Also, if it seems difficult to process at the beginning, you may need to stop and scrape the sides a few times to help get it started.)
  • 3. Enjoy your raw mashed potatoes!

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

A dollop of raw mashed "potatoes" on your plate turns an everyday meal into a festive feast!  And, yes, that's cauliflower masquerading as potatoes since eating raw potatoes is a no-no. :)

This is a simple cauliflower-based mashed potato recipe that adds a nice heartiness to a fresh meal.

Use these raw mashed 'taters as part of a holiday feast or just treat yourself with a nice hearty serving of mashed potatoes for a fun weeknight dinner. I recently enjoyed these mashed cauliflower-based "potatoes" with a large green salad and traditional style corn (just chop some raw corn off a cob and you've got a side-serving of corn)--served all on one plate I felt like I was at Grandma's -- raw style of course!

I love your website already. I've made cauliflower mashed potatoes before, but not completely raw. I was looking to add a few raw dished to our meal plan and you make it look tasty and simple.

Hey, would nutritional yeast work in this recipe as well? It sounds delicious, and I can't wait to try it!

I was wondering the same thing! I wanted to give them a little bit of a cheesy flavor, and thought that might work well with the cashews to do so!

Hy Casey and Catherine - I haven't tried it myself, but adding 1 tbsp of nut yeast couldn't hurt :)

I thought it was a great potato substitute. I used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic because I wanted a lighter garlic taste. My husband loved it.

This was delish!!! Love the garlic flavour! The cashews also added an interesting texture. :) I mixed it with a green salad and it was yum!

I like it a lot too, Sylvea. Add a side of sliced corn (straight off a raw cob) along with the green salad and it's an awesome meal.

Lol and by interesting texture, did you mean good interesting or bad interesting? ;)

My kids didn't like the garlic taste but I loved this recipe. I made a lot just wondering how long this will keep in the fridge?

It keeps really well in the fridge, perhaps 2-3 days, but it keeps really well and tastes very similar the next day.

Next time you can make it without the garlic if you like.

I just made these and it is absolutely delicious. I'm a garlic person so I added more garlic but it's so delicious. A new favorite. Thanks!!!
