I hope by using the recipes on this site you have learned to be flexible when it comes to cooking. Sometimes we just don’t have everything we need. That’s how this recipe for Cauliflower Sweet Potato Mash was born.
I didn’t have quite enough cauliflower or white potatoes for my usual cauliflower mash and decided to try this combo with sweet potatoes instead. The combination is divine for this cauliflower and sweet potato mash! This is another easy and quick recipe.
I usually have both sweet potatoes and regular potatoes on hand. Sweet potatoes, particularly, have excellent nutrition and fiber. Regular potatoes aren’t bad, either.
Add a few more plant-based side options to your meals:
- Butternut Squash, Brussels Sprouts, Apple Stuffing
- Glazed Radishes
- Mashed Cauliflower with Gravy
- Mushroom Quinoa Pilaf
- Scalloped Potato and Cabbage Casserole
If you want to kick up the flavor even more for this sweet potato and cauliflower mash, you can roast both the cauliflower and sweet potatoes to bring out their sweetness.
Try to cut the pieces in about the same size and they will roast evenly. You can place them on parchment paper or spray your pan with a little oil. Make sure they don’t burn. Report this ad
Having an easy and flexible recipe is so helpful when sticking to a plant-based diet. As you can see, you can switch up the ingredients and have options for the end flavor. And that’s exactly how this cauliflower sweet potato mash came to be for me. Report this ad
If you don’t like the idea of using unsweetened non-dairy milk, you could use vegetable broth instead.
In addition to roasting the vegetables or using broth over non-dairy milk, you could even switch up the seasonings for these mashed cauliflower and sweet potatoes. Feel free to add more spices, like a bit of onion or chili powder.
Or, instead, sweeten and spice this mashed sweet potato and cauliflower dish up by adding a date or two, plus a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg for a totally different flavor. I’d stick to the non-dairy milk, though, for these spices.

Are you sure you meant 12 c. milk?
Maybe you really meant 1/2/c.
Ooops, yep I meant 1/2 cup. Thanks for pointing that out 🙂
Hi, what’s the serving size?
Serving size is always one of the hardest things to figure on some recipes. Some food blogger say 1/8 of the recipe, but that doesn’t really give you want you want, I’m assuming. This recipe is for 1/2 of a cup. I hope that helps. I recalculated the nutrition label and had to adjust it upward on calories to 43 which is still great.
