If you are just finding us right now, you might not know that I’ve been sharing TONS of amazing Ruby Tuesday recipes. It’s one of my favorite restaurants so I enjoy finding ways to make these awesome recipes at home.

Try out the baked mac and cheese, the ranch dressing, or even the salad bar favorites: broccoli salad, baked potato salad, or pasta salad with ham and peas!

I’ve also made the Ruby Tuesday biscuits, their amazing potato soup, and of course the mashed potatoes. My family loves the white chicken chili from Ruby Tuesday, and the apple salad!

Here’s what you’ll need to make this mashed cauliflower recipe at home:

Find the full list of ingredients with amounts, nutritional info, and more in the recipe card at the bottom of the page! Make sure to shop your pantry before you head out shopping or make your grocery order, a lot of these things you might have on hand already.

From the pantry we’ll need to grab corn starch, sugar, salt, garlic powder, white pepper, and onion powder.

The fresh ingredients in this recipe are cauliflower, water, heavy cream, and that is all! This is a fairly simple and to the point recipe. The key here is to make sure we get the texture right!

The nice thing is that this recipe is naturally gluten free. If you have dietary restrictions you can make substitutions but I can’t say for certain how that will impact the overall taste. If you have a dairy free alternative that you love, I feel like it would be fine!

How to make the Ruby Tuesday mashed cauliflower recipe:

Dissolve the corn starch in ¼ cup of water and set aside.

Cut a head of cauliflower into small pieces. Steam over boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender. Drain and place in an ice bath to cool.

Add cauliflower & ½ cup of water to a food processor and puree on high speed until smooth. Pour all the pureed cauliflower into a medium saucepan. Add the corn starch solution to the cauliflower.

Make sure that the cauliflower is in similar sized pieces throughout, this will help it cook properly and that will help maintain the texture!

    This looks amazing! I currently don’t have a food processor, do you think just mashing it like potatoes would work just as well? In any case, the combination of ingredients looks like something to die for! 🙂

    I’ve tried cauliflower rice before, but not mashed cauliflower. I’m always looking for lower carb alternatives so this recipe really appeals to me, and it looks delicious. We don’t have Ruby Tuesday restaurants in the UK, but we had a meal in one when we were on holiday once and really enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing this post with the Hearth and Soul Link Party.

    I’m featuring this post at the party this week. Hope to ‘see’ you there! Take care, stay well, and I wish you a wonderful week!
