Cauliflower & Sweet Potato Mash

Steve got his wisdom teeth out!!! (insert grossed out face; yuck)! This whole process just brings up bad memories for me. When I had my wisdom teeth pulled (all 4) during my freshman year of high school, everything that could go wrong WENT WRONG. Shocking with my bad luck, I know. I had a dry socket AND an infection all while having to take a flight to Indiana without my parents. Needless to say, my travel partner had no sympathy for the excruciating pain I was going through.

During that time, I remember you couldn’t really eat solid or hot foods. While I was perfectly content on living off some ice cream and smoothies, I knew this would definitely not sustain Mr. Eat me out of house and home. So, in order to have a few options of mushy food for him, I whipped together an option of mashed potatoes.

Here’s hoping he has a better recovery than I did!

^I think he’s already fairing better than I did^


  • 2 lbs sweet potatoes
  • 1 lb cauliflower florets
  • 3 tbsp. milk
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. grated parmesan
  • 1 tbsp. chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh chopped parsley for garnish


  1. Peel and cut sweet potato into 1-inch chunks.
  2. In large pot with steam basket, steam sweet potato and cauliflower with 1 inch of water in bottom of pot for approximately 10-12 minutes or when tender (test with a fork)
    1. I did each vegetable separate, but you can gauge this based on the size of your pot
  3. Place in large bowl and mash the potato and cauliflower with the milk. Stir in the remaining ingredients
  4. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley
