  • 1 head cauliflower cut into florets
  • 1 kohlrabi peeled and cut large chunks
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt low fat or Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup chives minced + 2 tbs for garnish


  • Using a steamer basket, bring 3 inches of water to a boil then add cauliflower and kohlrabi.
  • Steam until veggies are fork tender - about 8-10 minutes.
  • Once veggies are cooked, pour out the cooking water and remove steamer basket.
  • Add veggies back into the same pan and use a potato masher to smash the cauliflower and kohlrabi together. (Let the kids help!)
  • Next, add in yogurt, horseradish, salt, pepper and 1/4 c of chives.
  • For an even smoother texture, use an immersion blender or electric mixer.
  • Serve with extra chives on top.
