Cauliflower Mash

  • 2 10 oz. pkg. frozen riced cauliflower
  • 1 6.5 oz. package Boursin cheese


  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 3 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp, tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tsp. fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen peas
  • parsley, finely chopped for sprinkling on top


Cauliflower Mash

  • Microwave the cauliflower according to the package directions. Combine the cauilflower and Boursin cheese in a food processor until smooth. Set aside.


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Add olive oil to a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and the carrots and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add the garlic and continue to cook for one minute.  Add the ground turkey, salt and pepper and cook until no longer pink, breaking the meat up with a spoon. 
  • Sprinkle the meat with the flour, stirring until combined. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, thyme and rosemary. Stir until well combined. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook until the mixture thickens, about 8-10 minutes,
  • Add the corn and the peas and mix to combine. Spread the mixture in a 9x9 baking dish. Top with the cauliflower mash, spreading to the edges. Sprinkle top with parsley, if desired.
  • Bake for 25 minutes until cauliflower mash begins to brown and mixture appears to be bubbling. Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
