This Instant Pot mashed cauliflower is a creamy, yet healthy, lower carb alternative to mashed potatoes. Made with cauliflower, parmesan cheese, greek yogurt, and seasoned with thyme.

The Instant Pot is a great way to prep easy side dishes ahead of time. Some of my favorite instant pot side dish recipes that would pair perfectly with this recipe are these Instant Pot brussels sprouts, or this Instant Pot wild rice pilaf.


Is there anything as delicious as creamy mashed potatoes? This Instant Pot mashed cauliflower comes pretty close! The addition of parmesan cheese, greek yogurt, fresh garlic and thyme make this recipe so buttery, smooth and delicious.

Best of all, this creamy mashed cauliflower is basically “hands-free”. Pop the whole head of cauliflower right in the Instant Pot, no need to break it down into florets.
