From all the low-carb and keto side dishes, cauli-mash is what I like to cook on most days. If you want to try something else than the regular keto cauli-mash, add some celeriac (aka celery root) and cream cheese.

Ingredients (makes 6 servings)

  • 1 large cauliflower (700 g/ 1.5 lb / 24.7 oz)
  • 1 small celeriac (200 g/ 7.1 oz)
  • 1/4 cup ghee, butter or lard (55 g/ 1.9 oz)
  • 1 tbsp chopped rosemary or 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tbsp chopped thyme or 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 cup cream cheese, full-fat (240 g/ 8.5 oz)
  • 1/2 tsp salt or more to taste (I like pink Himalayan)
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • optionally: 4 tbsp butter for topping


  1. Peel and dice the celeriac into about 1-inch pieces. Cut the cauliflower into small florets. Finely chop the rosemary and thyme (if you're using fresh). Keto Celeriac Cauli-Mash
  2. Heat a large pan greased with ghee over a medium-high heat. Add the chopped herbs to the pan and cook for just about a minute until fragrant. Add the cauliflower and celeriac and season with salt and pepper. Cook uncovered for about 5 minutes over a medium-high heat and mix to prevent burning. Then, lower the heat, cover with a lid and cook for 12-15 minutes or until soft. Keto Celeriac Cauli-Mash
  3. When the cauliflower and celeriac are browned and soft, take off the heat and place in a blender or use a hand blender. Keto Celeriac Cauli-Mash
  4. Pulse until smooth. Add the cream cheese and pulse again until well combined.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I made this last night. Even though I was lazy and steamed the two vegetables, it was still delicious!


Heaven on Earth.


It doesn't say how much a "serving" is. Can you please post this with your recipes?


Sure, good point! 😊 One serving is about 3/4 cup.


I didn't have all the ingredients for this so I made it differently.
I used cauliflower, sautéed scallions, sweet peppers, pink salt and pepper. I was very good. I am so learning a new way to cook.
I had never heard of celeriac before I will have to look for it in the store next time I go, I can try it out with the celeriac in it.


I've tried roasted bell peppers before and they are great for adding flavour to it! 😊
